/etc/rc.d/boot.d/S11boot.klog causing boot problems
I'm hoping someone can help me. I was having a problem booting my box, it would stop at an error "Creating /var/log/boot.msg" and the only way I could continue with the boot is "Ctrl-C" (thankfully that worked).
I put echo statements in my /etc/rc.d/boot file and tracked the problem down to a file called /etc/rc.d/boot.d/S11boot.klog
I renamed that file to /etc/rc.d/boot.d/.S11boot.klog (therefore hiding it) and now I can boot and no longer get any error messages.
My question is...... What does the S11boot.klog file do and what happens if I don't load it?
So far, everything seems to be working fine, but I can't imagine the machine wanting to load a file that did NOTHING so I have to be missing some sort of functionality now.
Specifics probably help so I'm running an AMD 266/128M SuSE 8.2 But I didn't think it was version (or distribution specific)
Thanks in advance for your help.
