Cool too many error messages on slackware 13.1


i already installed slackware13.1 for 3 weeks.
yet the problem is:
at the first time booting until login appeared,
lots of failure messages emerged on the screen and also too many errors.
however i could still get into the desktop and there was no problem.
what i wanna ask is, how can i overcome those errors since i still have no any solution concerning this matter?
and where can i see that error message??
because i still couldn't fine where the path log is
thanks alot!!

Hi, welcome to LQ!

To get a sensible answer you should post those messages; chances
are you can find them in /var/log/messages .



Cheers,
Tink

How do you expect us to help you if you don't post at least some of the messages? We can't determine what the problem is without them. Maybe just post the last 10 lines or so of /var/log/messages, if they're relevant.

Have you installed an initrd to boot the generic smp kernel as per the info in /boot/README.initrd file?
You should use the generic smp kernel for normal use according to that file.

I'm starting to wonder whether those "errors" are in fact just
plain old start-up info messages ... after all the OP said he
can work just fine on the box.


Cheers,
Tink

OK, those ARE actual errors, and they most likely stem from a damaged
medium in your CD-/DVD-drive.

Take it out, or disable auto-mounting, and they'll go away ...


Cheers,
Tink

Just to make sure (even if it's off-topic), you have a regular user account and aren't using the root account all the time, right?
