try this: in a terminal run `journalctl -f` as root.
In another terminal, run `systemctl start syslog-ng`.

If you don't see anything useful on the journalctl terminal, try increasing
the verbosity of syslog-ng (either by editing `/etc/sysconfig/syslog-ng`,
or by modifying
`/lib/systemd/system/syslog-ng.service` and running `systemctl daemon-reload`).
