Found some issues

Hi…

I’m playing new Odroid C2 install and different options regarding logging…if full log is enabled this error is constantly present in syslog;

rsyslogd-2007: action ‘action 17’ suspended, next retry is Wed Sep 14 10:17:31 2016 [try http://www.rsyslog.com/e/2007 ]

solution to fix it, and decrease disk writes is to disable following lines in /etc/rsyslog.conf (maybe someone finds this useful)

# daemon.*;mail.*;\
#        news.err;\
#        *.=debug;*.=info;\
#        *.=notice;*.=warn       |/dev/xconsole

General question if RAMLOG is enabled, is there a possiblity to include also syslog in it, currently its only visible in full log option. Could rsyslog be enabled by default and /var/log mounted as tmpfs, and writtent to disk on reboot ?

I also noticed Samba logging has some permission problems on /var/log/samba/cores

syslog shows;
