Question Boot Message Log


Hi,

Can anyone tell me if and where the boot messages are logged? Some things scroll by too quickly to read.

I have just installed Mandrake 9.2.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi!
Type "dmesg" in a console (maybe "dmesg > file") or check the /var/log/messages
Regards

Thanks!

The command dmesg does the job and it can be redirected too. Perfect.
