Is there a logfile for the startup process?
Whenever I boot up linux, a lot of text messages are generated by the startup process, namely the kernel, the initrd, and then the init scripts that follow that. But the messages can fly by too fast for me to read them...
So it would be good if those startup messages were stored in logfile somewhere, so that I don't have to speed-read anymore.
Is there a standard logfile for the startup messages, or is there a way to have one generated?
My distro is slackware, but I imagine this question is equally valid for most distros...
