[Solved] syslog error of some sort on boot

Post by Peterjack » Wed Mar 07, 2018 7:39 pm

This appears twice in sys.log every boot- can I fix it? Does it matter? Thanks, Pete

...it appears to be a somewhat older systemd bug, check here & here.
All in all, if you haven't noticed any other side-effects so far (ie. very slow boot, mounting problems & such), then it's probably nothing to worry about...

@thx-1138, boot is quite fast, really fast considering it is an old XP P4 3.6 GHz box, but I'll follow your links anyhow just because it is fun to learn.

Same thing (sys.log) is failing to find two setserial folders, almost the first few lines of boot, but I have removed setserial and ran auto-remove as well. I can't seem to find anything online to tell me how to stop it from looking. No folders remain, nothing in rc.local, nothing anywhere I can find or search will find.

Still, I'll mark this solved and read through the links you posted. Have a great evening and tank you. -Pete
