My system seems to be having problems creating log files:

  Ku uname -a
  FreeBSD KualaLumpur.cs.monmouth.edu 4.6-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.6-RELEASE #0:

  murray at builder.freebsdmall.com:/usr/src/sys/compile/GENERIC  i386

  Ku ls -ld /var/log
  drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  1536 Jun 25 03:03 /var/log

  Ku startx

  Fatal server error:
  Cannot open log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log"

  giving up.
  xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  unable to connect to X server
  xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  unexpected signal 2.


Also, the message

  syslogd: /var/log/console.log: No such file or directory

occasionally pops up on the console.  Can anyone explain how these problems
might be fixed?
