+#!/bin/sh
+# Sample startup script for rsyslogd on FreeBSD.
+# It worked on my machine, but this does not necessarily
+# mean it works on all machines - it's not thouroughly
+# tested. Please note that it may also work on other
+# BSD variants, too.
+#
+# As of this writing, there was an issue with the mysql client
+# library on startup. If compiled with MySQL support, rsyslogd
+# would not necessarily start correctly but could eventually
+# die with a "mysql client libary not found" (or similar)
+# message. I do not know its cause neither the cure. If you
+# have one, let me know.
+#
+# ATTENTION: you need also to change the /etc/rc.config file
+# and disable stock syslogd and then enable rsyslogd!
