Sometimes (around 1% of the time) my system doesn't start correctly.
the init process takes 100% CPU. systemd-journal.service is not
started correctly, and systemd tries to restart it in a loop.
The log is here : http://pastebin.ca/2207127

>From my understanding, the problem begins with

[   12.169769] systemd[1]: Child 138 died (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
[   12.169799] systemd[1]: Child 138 belongs to systemd-journald.service
[   12.169830] systemd[1]: systemd-journald.service: main process
exited, code=exited, status=1

I would like to activate journald logs to see if there is debug output
for this error. But i have no idea how to activate journal logs.

I'm running angstrom and systemd v189 with a linux kernel v3.2.19 on
arm cortex a8 CPU.

Maybe somebody will have an idea ?
