I have a Fedora Core 4 installation and I want to log the boot messages. It's supposed to be an automatic process and store the messages under /var/log/boot.log.*, right?
But my log files are empty. I've been reading around and I found that it has to be activated on /etc/default/bootlogd with: BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes. My problem is that I have no bootlogd file! anywhere.
Just had a look what's in them, big surprise, somehoe I don't think this is what you want.

Have you had a look at /var/log/dmesg on mine that's a boot record but it's a week old.
