hello again! simple questions about configuring


Hey again,

Well, now that Slack is up and, well, functional-I am now thinking about getting everything all streamlined and wanna start ironing out some of the kinks.

For the time being I am just looking for files and/or directories that contain things like bootlogs and things of that nature. Files that might tell me something about what-if any-conflicts my system may have right now.

I havent gotten any blatent up front error messages yet, but I want to start poking around a bit.

Any suggestions or pointers would be appreciated in regards as to where to look.
In the meantime I will keep working at not falling asleep halfway though a man page.

cheers,
Mike
