nand-sata-install copies /var/log/journal symlink instead of /var/log.hdd/journal


Recommended Posts

Since volatile journald logging is done in-memory in /run/log/journal, and made persistent in /var/log.hdd/journal, the rsync of /var/log/journal in nand-sata-install no longer works because it is a symlink to /var/log.hdd/journal in the live system, and will create a circular symlink when booting from NAND. On the target image /var/log is the folder that is directory-mounted to /var/log.hdd during boot.


I propose to exclude /var/log from the rsync, and rsync /var/log.hdd to /var/log on the target image.

Another solution could be to exclude only /var/log/journal from the rsync, and create an empty /var/log/journal in the target image.


Kind regards,
