Question boot message log

I am having a problem with a wireless interface, and when I set the txt mode for boot up, there is an error message that appears when the boot process tries to start the ndiswrapper, but it flies past the screen too quick.

when I checked the /var/log/message folder, most of the boot messages where there..but not that one...

Is there any way I can set the message loging to pick up everything.

hi srobbo, welcome to lq. try this from a terminal issue

dmesg > boot.messages

this should send a text file to your home directory for review.
good luck.

Also check out your /etc/syslog.conf and other files in /var/log. Different priorities of messages may be reported and may go to different files. Or just try 'grep -R wireless interface /var/log/*' or whatever.
