I've just tried the daily trunk buid from 30-11-2013

It boots as far as starting the system loggers and then stalls
and I have to ctrl-C to through the rest of the components to
get to Xaaes and the desktop.

Do they start manually ?


I tried syslogd and that won't start manually.

I've looked into this, and unfortunately this looks like it's a bug in the program 'initlog' that's used in the scripts.

In /etc/init.d/functions you'll see that initlog/INITLOG is used with a -s parameter which causes the trouble.

Basically the socket fix I put in to get samba working causes the initlog program to work and hang. Yes, that's correct, it has never been working in this function and actually silently fails the way it currently is. Now with the correct fix, it's trying to do something and pausing. I'm not sure why and I can't debug initlog as I can't find the source anyway. It seems to only exist as a binary in the initscripts package.

Therefore, you'll need to manually comment out any lines in this script that use the '-s' flag.

Luckily it's only to log success/failure/pass etc, the '-c' version of the initlog command is fine and does the actual starting of the daemons. So no real cause for concern.

If anyone does locate the source to initlog we can debug.
