[SOLVED] Cryptic upgrade message for syslog-ng

I got this message when upgrading syslog-ng

==> syslog-ng now reads from /run/systemd/journal/syslog in the
    default config. If you still use sysvinit/initscripts, this
    must be /dev/log in /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf

I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do, given the terseness of these instructions.

Do I change:

 unix-dgram("/run/systemd/journal/syslog");

to:

 unix-dgram("/dev/log");

Or does it need to be something more like what's in the arch wiki:

 unix-stream("/dev/log");

Yours, slightly afraid to reboot,
MarkH

Thanks Karol.

So apparently

 unix-dgram("/dev/log");

Will work fine.
