A few observations/questions:
- How can I check if XZ compression is enabled for the journal file
(needless to say I enabled XZ support during compile time).
The file seems to grow rather fast here (10 Mb after a few reboots).

- /etc/systemd/systemd-journald.conf mentions system-journald.conf(5)
but there is no such man page

- I tried to enable rsyslog to test how well it works in combination
with the journal. I used the aforementioned configuration to make it
listen on /run/systemd/journal/syslog. And then symlinked
/etc/systemd/system/syslog.service →
/lib/systemd/system/rsyslog.service (as mentioned in syslog.socket).
If I do that, running "logger foo" will make the message show up in
the journal and /var/log/messages. So far so good.
When I try to shutdown though, systemd get's stuck and I need to hit
CTRL+ALT+DEL repeatedly to make it shutdown completely. I somehow
suspect that redirecting the job output to syslog will trigger the
start of rsyslog.service (when it's already been stopped) so it needs
to be stopped again.
That's only a guess though.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
