fix (workaround) the thousands of log entries that logitech solar service creates on osx

It turns out that you can "instruct" syslogd so that it ignores all messages from Solar Service instead of writing them to /var/log/asl. Here's how:

1. Add the following two lines in /private/etc/asl.conf:

# Ignore messages from Logitech's Solar Service.app
? [CS= Sender Solar] ignore

2. Reboot

OR simply restart syslogd by running:

sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist

First of all Good day! I would just like to give thanks to the admin who posted this one I really appreciate it thank you.
Yeah right I totally agree with you! Yes it is true there are lots of problems you can encounter with Solar Service because I think it is still a beta application. Honestly I dont want to use mac as an OS of this one I prefer Windows. Keep up the good work and Godbless!
