I keep getting the following error since I have syslog-ng, the arch default, running when I start firestarter. "Failed to open the system log; No realtime hit information will be available. Please make sure the syslog daemon is running." If anyone is aware of how to make firestarter use syslog-ng or of another solution please let me know. I guess I can always switch to another firewall program, I just like to see the hits when I am working in gnome.
i have the same problem, i didn't untill i updated firestarter, now i am having some other issues too.
someone help us !
I think the answers in this post: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … ter+syslog
The answer is about halfway through though, so here it is:
I joined Firestarter's mailing list and found a solution...
The key was to edit the firestarter script in /root/.gnome2/firestarter
by adding these two lines to the end of it... fixed the GUI functionality right up....
um... did that but it didn't fix the problem on my system.
newer version of Firestarter i think.
lemme know if you have solved this one
