[Bug 554172] Re: CUPS and other system services not starting at boot

I have tried booting my Pentium 3 server (see comment 151 and 157 above)
with both a generic and generic-pae, and both have problems entering run
level 2.

Closer inspection of the kernel messages shows that ureadahead,
plymouthd and init were being killed during boot by the kernel's out-of-
memory killer. I disabled ureadahead by deleting
/etc/init/ureadahead.conf and /etc/init/ureadahead-other.conf, and the
server has rebooted several times without problems.

The problem of ureadahead being out-of-memory could be related to bug #590963:

I suspect that the init process being killed by the oom-killer is why
this server is not entering run level 2.
