syslog messages truncated to 256 chars during debian-installer run
Status in “busybox” package in Ubuntu:
We're seeing syslog messages during installers runs truncated to 256
chars. This is annoying.
Digging into the debian-installer source, its calling /sbin/syslogd
from the initrd - this is a busybox binary. In the busybox source,
there's a config variable CONFIG_FEATURE_SYSLOGD_READ_BUFFER_SIZE that
defaults to 256. From the code, that looks to be the problem.
Can we either -
1. fix busybox to use a dynamic buffer, or
2. bump the config variable up to 1024 or so?
I'm perfectly happy with solution 2 :)
