Do you have /run/var?
/run is mounted form fstab
tmpfs /run tmpfs defaults 0 0
in the very first boot boot script (mountvirtfs):
# Make sure /run/var is available before logging any messages
if ! mountpoint /run >/dev/null; then
mount /run || failed=1
mkdir -p /run/var /run/lock /run/shm
The scripts all use >> so the only reason that you would get this error
is iv /run is not mounted. Actually, even then the writing would be to
a standard directory so the issue would be permissions. These scripts
need to be run as root.
