I am new to syslog-ng. I tried to configure the daemon, obviously not with
great success. I will past the part form my .conf file and would like to
ask, why isn't the logging working.

#I have enabled this option.
 source src { unix-dgram("/dev/log"); internal(); file("/proc/kmsg"
kernel: ")); udp( port(514) ); };

#A new destination
destination local0{
owner("root") group("adm") perm (0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes));};

filter loc_network{
log {

As you' ve might seen, I try to get even every syslog message in the same
dir, but it just doesn't works.
Could it be a problem, that I haven't created the directory 'test' ?
