10.3.9 update can break remote logins (again) System
This is just repeat of the situation that occured in a previous update, as described in this previous hint -- basically, 10.3.9 overwrites the /etc/syslog.conf file, so if you've tweaked it, you'll need to re-do your efforts.

10.3.9 update can break remote logins (again)

About the syslogd options, the "-s" switch still isn't shown in the man page, but that's the one that I always have to remove from /etc/rc. Now, sometime during the 10.3 series (I believe), they added a line near the bottom of /etc/rc that looks for /etc/rc.local and sources it, if found. That makes it a bit easier for those of us who have a small action which doesn't require a service or StartupItem to be defined; Larry.

My customized syslog.conf file was not overwritten after performing the 10.3.9 update from 10.3.8. So maybe the syslog.conf file overwrite only occurs under certain conditions. I performed the update on a 3 Quicksilvers.
