    Broken logs

    I'm having a hard time believing that my logging issues are ubuntu issues. I'm posting this hoping that other ubuntu users will take a look at their logs and confirm that they either have a problem or don't.

    On Sept 23, 2012 certain system logs stopped logging on my ubuntu laptop. These logs were working fine up until that time. Some were rotated, creating a new log file, which thereafter remained empty. Some just have no entries after the 23rd, but would normally have daily entries.

    I run ubuntu 12.04 on two other computers in my household and neither are having this issue, but both are running stock ubuntu installs.

    Some of the files affected are:

    kern.log
    syslog
    dmesg
    boot.log
    samba/log.winbindd

    I'm at a total loss, needless to say. On that day I did do an upgrade. Synaptic tells me it did this:

    Commit Log for Sun Sep 23 14:32:57 2012


    Upgraded the following packages:
    ghostscript (9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.1) to 9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.2
    ghostscript-cups (9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.1) to 9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.2
    libgs9 (9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.1) to 9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.2
    libgs9-common (9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.1) to 9.05~dfsg-0ubuntu4.2

    Anyway, anyone else having this problem?

    TIA
