Just updated to 2.6.8.1 - Shuts down due to CPU Temps
 
It zips by pretty fast while the kernel is loading, but I catch something about the CPU temperature exceeded and it promptly shuts down. Two things:[list=1][*]What file has the logs for the kernel bootup? (Still have access to the old 2.4.26 kernel)[*]How can I edit "something" to increase the temperature thresholds? (It's a quiet PC and thus I can live with the shorter lifespan)[/list=1]
Not sure what I'd do without the great community support. :D

well... on your 2.nd Q.: some people put their box in the freezer, but in your case, i would just remove the casing.

and if you want to change the thresholds, i think you have to go to the bios-setup utility, available at boot( hitting " del " or " F2" , it's pointed out on the screen at boot ) and change that settings.

edit: for the messages look in /var/log/messages :)

1. Put this piece of code in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
Code:

if [ -f /var/log/dmesg.old ] ; then
    /usr/bin/rm -f /var/log/dmesg.old
fi
if [ -f /var/log/dmesg.txt ] ; then
    /usr/bin/mv /var/log/dmesg.txt /var/log/dmesg.old
fi
/bin/dmesg -s 65536 > /var/log/dmesg.txt

This will save the old dmesg.txt (of prior boot) to dmesg.old and saves the information of kernel boot messages in dmesg.txt . That way you always will have the messages of the before last time you booted a kernel in dmesg.old. You can expand this as well if you want to. If you are using Slackware 10.0 you can comment the line with the dmesg command in rc.M if you want to.

After some research I found this thread:

My PC-DL Deluxe BIOS has no control over the temperatures, so it seems I'm under the mercy of the predetermined maximum temperatures. :mad:
