Please help! My klogd is stuck...
I need some advice. I spent 8 hours today to solve this problem, however without success...
I have 2 VPSs with exactly the same problem. They both run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS under an openvz config.
I installed "nullmailer" to serve as my local sendmail/smtp server. However, one of it's dependencies is "klogd", so it installed it as well...
I have no idea why it's necessary..
Anyway, it gets stuck on load. I gets stuck for about 5-10 minutes. After this period, it's still not running. The main problem is that after reboot, no service (nginx/php-fpm) will turn on until klogd will finish being stuck.
It also runs some "dd" process... Here is the "ps ax | grep dd" output: /bin/dd bs=1 if=/proc/kmsg of=/var/run/klogd/kmsg
Here is how it looks for 10 mins: http://d.pr/i/kesw
