[Snort-users] Sylog-ng _and_ Mysql with Snort 2.0.0

I tested Snort now with the following cmd-line Options
snort -i eth0 -U -o -c /etc/snort/conf/snort.eth0.conf -D

In my snort.eth0.conf file is the following line:
output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
I comment out the line with mysql, so now i only want to log to syslog-ng now. 
I think the Problem is syslog, because mysql without syslog works. Mysql 
_and_ syslog or only syslog doesn't work.

Syslog-ng is up and running, but it doesn't log.
Here is my syslog-ng Config-File:
source src {

//For testing log to localhost, later to remote Machine
destination localhost {
log {
             source(src); destination(localhost);

So anyone has anwers for my question why syslog doesn't work?
