Description

Is it possible to have a ln -s /var/log/dmesg.boot /var/run/dmesg.boot? The vm-bhyve package expects the file at the standard location.

Is there a reason why dmesg.boot is under varlog_path instead of varrun_path?

History

#1 Updated by Jim Pingle over 3 years ago

It was relocated because /var/run is a tiny memory disk used for some very volatile files to save disk writes, and there is more room in /var/log/

A symlink should be OK, but some code would need to create the link at each boot. Should be fairly simple to do.
