Boot process messages: Where to find?


During the boot process, the success/failure message go by so fast, i am
unable to read all of them. Does anyone know if they get stored into
some sort of a log file?

There's aways "dmesg"

http://www.linux.com/develop/man/8/dmesg/

Do a "dmesg | less" to be able to scroll up or down through them.

"q" quits.

There is also often useful info in /var/log/messages.
