boot sequence


Hi all,

During boot up I can see some problems that I'd like to fix, but as "Pause" button doesn't work I don't know exactly what happens.

how can I do this? Is there any file where this info is logged?

Thanks

hi there,

i suggest

Code:
dmesg > file.dummy
after that you can check kernel messages opening "file.dummy".

or also a look at

Code:
/var/log/messages

Kernel messages (eg. setting up device drivers) are logged at booting into a memory buffer, which is accessible with the command
Code:
dmesg | less
init messages (eg. starting and stopping services) get logged into /var/log/boot.log

hi there,

AFAIK, this file is distro dependent. It is not default everywhere.
