Details

Description: The default /etc/rsyslog.conf has the following line which contains deprecated syntax:
*.emerg *

Check the config file:
[root@hostname etc] # rsyslogd -N6
rsyslogd: version 6.4.0, config validation run (level 6), master config /etc/rsyslog.conf
rsyslogd: action '*' treated as ':omusrmsg:*' - please change syntax, '*' will not be supported in the future [try http://www.rsyslog.com/e/2184 ]
rsyslogd: warning: selector line without actions will be discarded
rsyslogd: End of config validation run. Bye.

Changing that line to this one will fix the deprecated syntax warning:
*.emerg :omusrmsg:*

Check the new config file:
[root@megahurtz etc] # rsyslogd -N6
rsyslogd: version 6.4.0, config validation run (level 6), master config /etc/rsyslog.conf
rsyslogd: warning: selector line without actions will be discarded
rsyslogd: End of config validation run. Bye.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 6.4.0-1
