Is there a file that contains all the stuff that scolls past during boot?


I see a lot of stuff scrolling by during the boot process. Windows can be set to produce a bootlog. Can Linux be set to do the same thing. Or is it there and I just don't know where?

TIA

Ron

Also the command dmesg will show everything that your kernel writes, the thing that scroll by before the init process starts.

If u want all messages, open up /etc/syslog.conf and add a line
kern.debug(tab)/var/log/debug
or
*.debug(tab)/var/log/debug

now touch /var/log/debug, reboot, and youve got like, really everything :-]

*dont forget to comment it out when tru.
