Quick Question: Bootlog


I got some errors on boot that i want to fix but in order to read it in detail i need to log it somehow.
I heard this was possible with the RC_BOOTLOG="yes" option, so i set it and now my question is where the log is kept?

all log files are stored in /var/log
so the log you are searching for is prob. /var/log/boot.log

try this command too
dmesg
