Thread: location of boot.msg file in opensuse 12.3

  1. #1

    Default location of boot.msg file in opensuse 12.3

    Hello ! I have tried to find the boot message after booting the system. I am not able to find it. In all the previous versions of open suse there was a file in /var/log/boot.msg. In open suse 12.3 it is not there. Is this file depricated in open suse 12.3?
    Regards.

    Yes.
    If plymouth (the boot splash) is enabled, you should have /var/log/boot.log instead, because plymouth forwards all messages printed to the text console to this file.

    Otherwise have a look in /var/log/messages or systemd's journal:
    Code:
    journalctl -b
    '-b' only shows the messages from the current boot, you should run it as root (or via sudo) to see _all_ messages.
    For further options have a look at "man journalctl".
