 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Critical logging during boot

Hello Lee,

thank you for your answer.
By critical I meant the level of logging. Not if the services which are 
starting are critical.
Let me hint you here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syslog#Severity_levels

I am just wondering why the bootup process get logged with a critical 
severity and not on e.g. informational level.
I hope you understand what my confusing part is.
