my computer crashed and I have no clue why. "sudo ls -lat" shows /var/log/* contains nothing which has been changed during the previous session, except for xorg and gdm logs -- neither has been updated during the crash. google tells me some other distro just mounts /var as a temporary filesystem (since not hdd but ssd is used for that raspberry-pi os) and sym-links the directories with persistent files into that. there enabling storage of old log files is a matter of creating that link for /var/log. so obviously on gentoo someone decided to erase old logs forcefully on every boot-up. where does this happen? how can I prevent that next time? is the boot-flag "debug" a hard requirement for that? actually I'd like to keep enough logs for above command to work...

neither manpage nor "grep /var/log" helped...
