Hello Daniel,

i am using ubutu 10.4 Lucid and running nginx 0.8.54. I tried patching
nginx with the patch link you mentioned above but it doesn't work.  I
have tried all the patches mentioned in but none seem to work.  I am
trying to use syslog-ng to centralize all the nginx logs to one server.

After patching, during make i get this 

objs/src/os/unix/ngx_process.o: In function `ngx_process_get_status':
ngx_process.c:(.text+0xe5d): warning: `sys_errlist' is deprecated; use
`strerror' or `strerror_r' instead
ngx_process.c:(.text+0xe4b): warning: `sys_nerr' is deprecated; use
`strerror' or `strerror_r' instead
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/nginx-0.8.54'

and then after a nginx start,  the file error.log shows up but
access.log is no where to be seen. The error.log doesn't update at all,
so basically the logging doesn't happen at all. 

Any ideas? Any pointers is appreciated.
