I like having /var/log/messages operational at all times, even when using my live CD/DVD. However, at some point in the remastering process, syslogd (I guess) stops feeding /var/log/messages. In fact, the PCLOS system I use for remastering has stopped all logging to /var/log/messages.
I've GOOGLEd high-and-low but can't find any info about how to re-enable output to /var/log/messages. I really thought I'd already found the answer here on the PCLOS forum, but even explicitly GOOGLEing the forum produced no specific answers. I believe it's a matter of some option related to CHKCONFIG, but I don't recall anymore.
I'd also like to know if it's possible to make sure MKLIVECD doesn't disable logging to /var/log/messages for a given ISO. That is, without having to hack the MKLIVECD script.
