I'm a total Linux newb with an installation of Slackware 10.2, kernel release 2.4.31 on a Sony VAIO laptop. So far so good. A lot of things are working, though I'm sure a lot of things are not working as they should.
When I boot, a lot of text scrolls by quickly on the screen, with occasional pauses. Not all of the messages are favourable: this or that failed to load, something loaded in read-only mode, but it all scrolls by too quickly to make a note. Is there a way to capture this boot text so that I can use it diagnostically? Or is there another systematic way to identify these problems?
Thanks for your help.
