After upgrading to 2.0, I now see the nice syslog entries "MARK"
and my ppp connections (pppd and chat daemon messages), kernel scsi remarks,
kernel firewall denials, but no boot messages.
For example, there is no "Memory ...".
I suspect that a line must now be missing from some /etc/init.d/* file, eg,
klogd -o -f /var/log/messages
However, such a line would need to be early in the boot: after /etc/rcS.d/*
files run but before most every other boot file since a permanent klogd
daemon runs in the file
I could insert a "klogd -o" command in one of the boot files,
if that is what was used before, but I hate to do what should already
be done somehow.
Any ideas? For example, does your
grep klogd /etc/init.d/*
reveal a "klogd" with the "-o" option?
