Some time in the last month Tumbleweed lost the ability to boot into
runlevel 3 (command line with no X server running) by appending a 3 to

replacement is?

Does it still occur for you and have you not changed klog units since?
If so, run and paste

systemctl status klog

â klog.service - Early Kernel Boot Messages

Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/klog.service; enabled; vendor

Thanks. I too observe the same output.

`systemctl status klog` on TW:
loaded (/usr/.../klog.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
`systemctl status klog` on openSUSE 13.2 however reports:
loaded (/usr/.../klog.service; disabled)

So, *someone or something* caused klog service to become enabled all
of a sudden. That in turn means that klog's requirements are being
started on boot. Since klog requires "" (which is
equivalent to, graphical parts will be started even
though you have "3" on the boot line.

systemd is working properly.

But you might want to ask Werner Fink / mtomaschewski about
Hallo Jan,
this can explain my observations. The behaviour holds not only for the kernel
parameter, but also for using the commands 'init <runlevel>' and 'systemctl
isolate <target>'.
If the is set to multi-user. i could change between multi-user
and graphical with all three methods. If the ist set to
graphical. i could only change between graphical and graphical.

For me the question is: Why requires klog.service It need
local-fs to access /var/log. It needs virtual consoles for /dev/tty10.

Another question is: Do we need klog any further? I assume, we can see the
messages, that go into /var/log/boot.msg, with journalctl too (but only as
long as the system runs, i think).
