where does kernel keep bootlog


I'm having some trouble with my SATA burner, and I noticed that on boot, the kernel spits out some SATA bus info. The thing is, it scrolls up too fast and I can't read it.

Are bootlogs kept anywhere except stdout?

Thanks,


Gasper

Thanks, found it.

Found what I was looking for too. But i'll continue this thread in the "hardware" section.

Detects all 4 SATA devices, (scsi2 being the cd-rom), but maps only the 3 discs to /dev/. I don't get it .

Sorry, but first I MUST tell you off. I know it's probably not my place but highjacking threads is VERY bad manners.

And no, i wouldn't know anything just from that. I've seen your thread and i can't do anything about it. Let's take this there shall we? This is a thread about less /var/log/dmesg
