    it helps, thanks

    but i was looking to check the log files within yast, does anyone know why this option was disabled on 11.3. i think it used to be called yast messages or yast logs

    regards

    I have the same question. Where did the log viewer go?

    There are logs in there that are not text files and things you must be logged in as root to see. The "log viewer" in YAST handled all that.

    In 11.2 you could view two logs in YaST>Miscellaneous, but not with YaST in 11.3. The equivalent text files you need are here:

    Start-up/boot log: /var/log/boot.msg

    System log: /var/log/messages

    On 11.3 with Gnome I have "Log File Viewer" in Applications/More Applications under the heading System. Is that what you're looking for?

    What version of KDE are you running? I just installed Ksystemlog after
    reading above thread. I get Icon and give root password, but nothing comes
    up. Did you have to make any changes? I'm on KDE 4.5.1 so that could be the
    problem even though that thr repo it installed from.

    Thanks
