Write Error Log to Text File
I've got a problem. After i install debian everything seems to go well. I'm presented with a black screen. I know i have to install x-window and gnome or kde to get the graphical user interface. So i used the apt-get install command to install x-windows, gnome and kde.
Now here's where my problem comes. As soon as i type startx to get GUI going the monitor turns black for a few seconds and then returns to the previous text interface. It also throws out a whole bunch of errors. Too many for me to write down because they are not all displayed on screen.
So my question is as follows is there any way with commands to start x-window and tell it to create a text file with all of errors it encounters. That way i can post it up and you guys can help me to get it going correctly.
If there isn't any way to have it automatically write the error log what's the work around???
Thanks in advance
