On newer versions of Linux, it is more common to find rsyslog installed by default, superseding the older syslog. For example, on the latest Ubuntu Server LTS, rsyslog is the default.

rsyslog is application compatible to syslog, but setting it up is a bit different.

This patch includes changes to the help for syslog.module so users do not get confused if they are on a newer version that has only rsyslog.

The last submitted patch, rsyslog.patch, failed testing.

Good change. This got me stumped, too. This needs to get into Drupal 8 first, however. It's also oubtful if this is ever going into D7, since it means breaking translatable strings :-(
