What I'm saying is that I had a SOCK_STREAM server and it worked, which means libcs had support for SOCK_STREAM clients. And the glibc still does: http://repo.or.cz/w/glibc.git/blob/HEAD:/misc/syslog.c If there's no authoritative source asserting that /dev/log is a datagram socket and nothing else, I'm submitting a feature request to support SOCK_STREAM in musl's syslog(). I know it would horribly complicate the code, but I have something that works with glibc and doesn't with musl, and nobody wants that. :) -- Laurent
