/var/log/boot.log doesn't exist???


Hi,

On bootup, I get some errors about some shared libraries and it seems that it affects one of my program.

I wanted to check in /var/log/boot.log to see if I could get more info, but the log file is empty!!! There is /var/log/boot.log.1 but the last entry is from a week ago...

What could be wrong??

Thank you very much
