That's certainly not the problem. I think you missed something during
installation, but I can't tell you what it is :-/.

/dev/klog is the pseudo device used to grab kernel messages. Reading it
is more or less the equivalent of using dmesg. If your installation went
fine, you can find the messages in /var/log. If not, use these commands :
cat /dev/klog > dmesg
[wait 3 seconds]
Ctrl-C (don't be in single user mode, that is, -s on the kernel command line,
or you won't be able to interrupt the process)
read the dmesg file

It's ok, there aren't many services logging on your system, that's all.
