retrieving msgs during boot


During boot, a long list of stuff goes by. Everything from loading modules to running script in init.d. Sometimes, these generates errors. After booting finish, can I retrieve whatever was displayed but got scrolled up really fast?

Thanks

Check in /var/log/bootlog for the bootup messages. Thats what I check in redhat & fedora to find any errors etc..

On many distros the early parts of the boot sequence are shown by running as root:
Code:
dmesg | less
Then some additional information may show in:
Code:
less /var/log/messages
