Upgrade to 10.2.4 can break remote logging. UNIX
I used instructions found here (see this hint) to set up my Mac as a remote logger for our Pix firewall. After upgrading to 10.2.4, I was no longer capturing those logs. It turns out the upgrade wiped out my /etc/syslog.conf file and replaced it with a clean copy.

So, before upgrading to 10.2.4, copy /etc/syslog.conf to your desktop. Then, after the upgrade, copy it back (you'll probably need sudo) and restart the syslog daemon with sudo killall -HUP syslogd. That got me logging again.

Thank goodness I just happened to be reading this today just as I was installing the 10.2.4 update! :)

Thanks for the heads up!
