boot message and dmesg and logs


Hi

I did a post and found that boot up messages on slackware 9.1 are supposed to be viewabe from dmesg.

now I have done a dmesg > /my folder/boot.txt and it is still missing some boot messages I can see talking about a sanity check. The boot messages appear to have at least 3 lines more but I dunno as its the last lines of message just b4 my runlevel changes to gui.

I have looked in /var/log/ messages and syslog to no avail

QUESTION
where else can I look please?

or (2) is there something I can do to test all my boot messages go to dmesg etc?

I suggest you to read : man bootparam
this will help you pass neccessary options to the kernel in /etc/lilo.conf to setup a debug level and also size of the buffer for debug messages.

aus9,
no problem.
i just want to remind you that when you are in front of linux box a lot of information is at your fingertips. to get you that tip all i did:
man dmesg
apropos kernel | grep boot (man -k kernel | grep boot will give you the same)
man bootparam

that's it.
good luck,
nick.

one more thing. cannot explain why... call it a hunch. but i suggest you to keep the size of the ring buffer in powers of 2
