Thread: Find out which bugs/errors are detected by the system when it boots?

  1. #1

    Default Find out which bugs/errors are detected by the system when it boots?

    How do I find out which bugs/errors are detected by the system when it is loaded/booted.
    have seen the emergence of failed in red text briefly but did not have time to read what it says.

    Would prefer to send a log(file containing error log) so experienced users can see if I done something wrong or if it appears to be ok. but how do I do this?

    Look at dmesg output and the contents of /var/log/boot.msg

    Yast used to have an option, there's kSystemlog now to view the logfiles.
    Maybe an easier way for you is to enable "flow_control". This lets you stop and resume the boot process by Ctrl-S and Ctrl-Q, but it's off by default. To set it to on:


    Yast
    System
    Sysconfigeditor


    Search for "FLOW_CONTROL" set it to yes. Will work on next boot.


    But.........if your system works OK, don't bother about it too much. You might even find a service reporting "failed" to be running (it simply tried again).


    One thing I've seen a lot after LiveCD install, is that VBox and Vmware services are initiated. You can turn them of through
    Yast
    System
    Runlevel Editor


    Good luck
