Anybody else able to reproduce this?
Basically you just boot a Rawhide LiveOS image in a VM with
systemd.log_level=debug and then once booted see what you get for
# journalctl -b -o short-monotonic
It should start with 0 seconds, with the first line of what you see in
dmesg. For me it's missing everything before 20 seconds. If I don't
use the debug switch, it doesn't happen, so it's like the debug option
is flooding the journal and it just bails.
OOooh I have a possible suspect!
[liveuser@localhost ~]$ losetup
NAME SIZELIMIT OFFSET AUTOCLEAR RO BACK-FILE
/dev/loop1 0 0 0 1 /LiveOS/rootfs.img
/dev/loop2 0 0 0 0 /overlay (deleted)
/dev/loop0 0 0 0 1
/run/initramfs/live/LiveOS/squashfs.img 0 512
What is this loop2 /overlay that's been deleted? I wonder if it's
possible the journal got flushed there at first, and then it was
I find it kinda hard to believe I've got more than 16MiB of journal
messages just by booting the system, and there are two system journals
in /var/log/journal/$MACHINEID/ but that's apparently not everything.
