    Default Where is the bootup log in SUSE?

    I am specifically on SuSE 9.3. I did a quick search on web and it was looking lke you have to enable the permanent storage of the bootup log. Can someone please clarify.

    In /var/log you will find:

    boot.msg
    messages

    AFAIK they have always been in /var/log

    wow...that is an old version...i don't exactly remember how it was
    done on back then, but have a look in /var/log where you might find
    boot.log, boot.msg and several other logs some of which may also have
    archived history right there..

    as far as log management (compacting, archiving or deleting): yes,
    each individual administrator is free to set that up exactly the way
    they want/need it via logrotate...

    i don't remember how 9.3 was default installed, but would be
    astonished to learn that the default install would keep all/any logs
    forever...i think many were thrown out when 30 days old, or so..

    just a thought: you might consider the security implications of
    running a system unpatched for the last x years..
