New Installation, faulty Search Funcion

I have installed RT & it’s necesary components under FreeBSD. I have 90% of all the functionality working, however I am seeing a problem that has been briefly discussed in your archives. Unfortunately none of the information thus far has helped solve the issue. Here’s what’s up.

Local configuration:
Running FreeBSD 5.2.1
Perl 5.8.2 (compiled from ports before RT or modules installed)
Rt version 3.0.10
Mod_perl 1.29
Perl CPAN says your freezethaw and mason are up to date.
I am not using any international languages.

Visible Problem:
When I log in to RT & go to search tickets I get a ‘System Error’. This error does not happen if I click the ‘search’ button in the upper right, but if I click the one in th elower right (with or without any search requirements set) I recive the error.
It’s the same error I get when I try and create a new class in RTFM.

HTTP Error Screen:
error: no connection to syslog available at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/Log/Dispatch/Syslog.pm line 77

raw error

This message appears in the logs…
"Do not know how to thaw data with code `F’ "

Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
