Description SEKINE Tatsuo 2003-02-05 04:42:59 EST
Description of problem:

The first valid line of rc.sysinit are:

    if [ -z "$IN_INITLOG" -a -x /sbin/initlog ]; then
        exec /sbin/initlog $INITLOG_ARGS -r /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

/sbin/initlog doesn't define INITLOG_ARGS variable, 
and no configuration file (like /etc/init.d/functions) is not imported
at this time.

Therefore INITLOG_ARGS variable is not defined
except kernel command line such as
  ro root=LABEL=/12 INITLOG_ARGS=-q

Probably, /etc/init.d/functions file should be imported at the top of
rc.sysinit script or other scheme to configure INITLOG_ARGS should be
requierd to reflect BOOTUP configuration (defined in /etc/sysconfig/init).

Is this causing errors for you?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-05 12:57:55 EST
Actually, I'm thinking that the reference to initlog_args there can probably
just be removed.
Comment 3 SEKINE Tatsuo 2003-02-09 06:44:22 EST
Sorry, It's not BUG.
It doesn't cause any error.

I change severity to "enhancement".
