How to locate operaions that failed when booting FC3?


Good day,

When I boot Fedora Core 3, there appears to beoperations that failed to initialize.

How do I locate these failed operations once I have logged in?

Thus far none of these failed operations has affected usinf FC3.

I,m assuming you are getting failed starting services, such as mail,sound , etc.
Go to applications / system settings / server settings / services . You will be prompted for root password, after entering you will see a list of all services, those enabled and those not. If you incorrectly configured something, you can turn off it,s startup there., Hope this helps...

When you boot your system you will see the services starting with an "ok" or "failed".
Only turn off those failed!!! since you said fc3 works ok it sounds as if a particular program or service is configured incorectly. I had the same problem with a mail app. I may be thinking in another direction so tell me what you see not initializing, or why you think some services are not initialized.

let me know!

But how do I locate which ones that have failed?

When the system boots, the services appears so fast that I cannot note the failed ones (I can see the "failed" notification)

Is there a way to locate them or I have to be quick and spot the faield ones?

Thanks

Boot logging is written to /var/log/boot.log. You should find success or fail messages there.
