/var/log/boot.log is empty

Hi,

Fedora 14 64 bit - fully updated.

Sometimes I like to check the boot.log file (/var/log/boot.log)

However, in the last week or so, it is no longer being populated.The file is being created, but has zero bytes.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks,
Palooka

Re: /var/log/boot.log is empty

My system is 64 bit and updated through the updates in the updates repo, but not the updates-testing repo. For me, /var/log/boot.log is being written to normally. Did you update from updates-testing, or are you using systemd by chance?
