[syslog-ng] freebsd /dev/klog logging

I seem to have problems getting any messages from /dev/klog when using
syslog-ng 3.0.3.  My syslog-ng.conf file looks like this:


template t_default {
        template("${DATE} <${FACILITY}.${PRIORITY}> ${HOST} ${MSG}\n");

destination d_tmp {


source s_klog {

log {   


I have a kernel module that just calls log(9) to generate a message on
/dev/klog.  It loads fine, and the message does appear in the dmesg(8),
but nothing is written to /var/log/klog.

Likewise, messages from ipfw(8) do not show up in that file.

I'm quite sure I'm missing something... but what?

Many thanks in advance,
