Thread: Boot log

  1. #1

    Default Boot log

    When the system boots, before the splash screen comes up you see the boot commands executing scrolling up the screen.

    Is this dumped to a file somewhere? I'd like to look through it so I can see what actually takes place during a boot.

    All of that stuff can be read with the command 'dmesg | less'. Most of
    the messages are in /var/log/boot.msg - the rest is in /var/log/messages'.

    Thanks. I also just came across it in YAST under Miscellaneous>Boot-log

    The GUI there reads /var/log/boot.msg.

    Default bootchart gives you a timeline

    For a nice, helpful, GANNT-like chart of boot activity, give bootchart a try.
