I'm wondering where sailfish stores some kind of system log files. I have checked /var/log/ and /var/systemlog/, but neither seems to contain any sort of general log. Am i just missing something?

At least here: https://together.jolla.com/question/850/bug-google-account-logout/ is a log snippet from something i might be looking for...

Long story short: We use systemd's journald. It's configured with /etc/system/journald.conf . You can read it in terminal or over SSH in developer mode with 'journalctl' command.

The default setting is that the log is volatile (only exists in RAM - erased at reboot), you can flip it to persistent and it would store into /var/log/journal in a binary format readable with journalctl.

Alright, thanks for the info. I'm having a problem where the phone randomly shuts down, so I'll make the log persistent and have a look at it next time the problem occurs.

Were you able to read pre-boot log with persistent storage? Which command-line?
