How to find/capture install messages


I am upgrading Mandriva from DVD and have encountered a problem. I opened a separate thread on this problem but I need the upgrade output to solve that so this is kind of a different thread.

I am getting an error with respect to X11 configuration. It goes into a loop and the only way to end it is to power off the machine. I cannot find where the upgrade puts its messages. So my question is, how do I get the upgrade to log messages, or if is does where are they (not in /var/log that I can find)?

Have you tried dmesg ? Also, you boot into lvl 2 (text only mode), then start the X server, and see the output, and perhaps error messeges, or at least see where it fails.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately by the time I boot the system so I can look at dmesg, the ring has wrapped or there is nothing from the install in it. Starting X is not the issue, the error messages indicate a problem locating the driver modules. The install process is not completing so I can only assume some config/control files are not being written. I tried to figure out a way to do just that much of the install using one of the Drake tools but I can't figure out what to tell it to install that is not already installed according to the rpm database.

I don't know if this will help but I used ssh to do an xorgconf. I then tried 'startx' and got a bunch of output. Here is the result:

waiting for X server to shut down
One additional note. I did get a display on my monitor that it was an unsupported mode. I guess that means I had my scan information wrong. I have a ProView 900P. Unfortunately the manual does not contain any information that I can translate into answers asked by 'xorgconf'. I doubt this is the problem but if anyone is familiar with this monitor I would appreciate it if you could tell me what the correct settings should be. At least that will eliminate that as a possibility.

Thanks for your help.

Can't help with X, but most installs (don't know about Mandy) dump the messages out to another vt - try <Alt>-F4 or 5. What the hell, try them all ...

Thanks but none of those keys do anything. At that time during the install, I'm sure the problem is that there is just not enough OS available for redirection or much of anything else.
