Package: sysvinit
Version: 2.86.ds1-1
Severity: normal

After booting, /var/log/boot is still empty. I don't know if there's
an error message: the messages are output too quickly on the screen.
There's nothing in the various log files (and dmesg output) anyway,
and bootlog is stopped without any error:

Stopping Bootlog daemon: bootlogd.

I have:
