Boot Script


Quick question : How do I "recall" what info has been contained in the "boot script"? I am having "issues" with a couple of things at the moment, and I need to be able to read what scripts are being passed with booting my system.

TIA

You have the whole startup sequence in /etc/rc.d/. After kernel boot, it checks in /etc/inittab what to do, and in Slack's case it'll be running /etc/rc.d/rc.S. When this script is finished, it's "Going multiuser..." and this is the /etc/rc.d/rc.M script. Take a look in /etc/rc.d, it's quite educational

Sorry, but I was wnting to know how do I go about reviewing all the scripts that run prior to login. You know, those commands that go rushing by so quickly, and if you are looking to troubleshoot a problem one would imagine that "stuff" is pretty important.

Sorry if what I was asking help with was mistaken for what I might have thought was "Boot Script".

TIA

try typing dmesg|less. Your log files in /var/log will likely also contain some useful info.
