I have a strange problem on an OpenSuSE11.1 box. Only very few of the init.d scripts for runlevel 3 and 5 are executed, eg. syslog and network. Despite the fact all links in the rcS.d folders are setup for various other services none of them are started (eg. sshd, cron, apache2...).
Unfortunately there is nothing in /var/log/messages which points in the direction of a problem with any of the services that are not started. It seems they are just ignored.
Any ideas what could cause this problem?
