[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#532904: sysvinit: with CONCURRENCY=shell in /etc/default/rcS, bootlogd don't send boot messages also on console

Package: sysvinit
Version: 2.86.ds1-61
Severity: minor


  I've configured bootlogd to capture boot messages on the console and save them in /var/log/boot. I've also installed insserv in order to run level 2 init scripts in parallel, to save few seconds during boot. I've noticed that if I use 'CONCURRENCY=shell' in /etc/default/rcS, I don't get anymore init scripts' output messages once bootlogd has started. With CONCURRENCY=none or startpar, bootlogd works well, copying console messages captured in the boot console.
