Hi, I am getting some output during boot up that does not appear in any of the log files in /var/log. How can I get access to these messages? I would like them logged in the future...that is, I would like to have a log file that is an exact duplicate of the output I see during bootup (no extra details, no missing details...just an exact duplicate).
If I change the output from /dev/console to a log file, then I won't see it at the console anymore. I could try tee, but there should be a nice way to keep the output going to console...additionally, it should log these to a file. Note, to see the display before I log in, I could hold down shift and press page-up. This will allow me to see the messages...so this is stored in some buffer. Can't I output the buffer to a file?
