well, i don't think it's a matter of not using suse-firewall2 or not reading
the logs but accepting the new iptables log-format :-)

there is the parameter FW_LOG, which uses iptables logging options like
--log-level etc.
if you want to adapt your log-format read 'man iptables' and search for LOG
to get an overview of available log-options and pick those you need.

stefan
