I used your configuration with the sample application "examples/trivial"
and it works quite well:

t-root                                                        debug message
t-root                                                        info message
t-root                                                        warn message
t-root                                                        error message
t-root                                                        fatal message

What I did is to remove the call to BasicConfigurator::configure() in the
trivial.cpp example, and created a file log4j.properties in the examples
directory which contains exactly your configuration.

If you do not call any Configurator, log4cxx looks for the files
log4cxx.properties, log4cxx.xml, log4j.properties and log4j.xml
in the current directory and uses them. Alternatively you can call
to have better control over which file is used.

Definitely not :-)

That should be simple, just start with the trivial.cpp example
shipped with log4cxx...
