Enabling Boot Log after LMDE UP4

Postby 5hades0f6rey on Tue Apr 10, 2012 5:11 am

How does one do it?! Or is this no longer possible???

I'm getting unexpected errors during boot that scroll off the screen too fast and/or I'm getting black screens (AMD driver and UP4 don't seem to like each other at all). If i can enable boot logging, then I could access the logs remotely via telnet/ssh. However, it would appear that /etc/default/bootlogd is no longer present after installing UP4 and recreating it doesn't seem to help either.

I only know:
/var/log/kern.log
My Linux history: Ubuntu 10.04 - 10.10 - LMDE 201109 - UP4 My sources.list/preferences

Computers is not science. And it's not magic - it's something in between.

/etc/default/bootlogd is no longer present after installing UP4

It's obsolete now.

So just run

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install bootlogd

and that should do it :)

Many thanks. I missed that while searching, I kept finding pages referencing the now obsolete method.

Many thanks here, too. The 3.2 kernel clears the screen after booting. I missed having those boot messages to check for errors.

It's always useful to read the thread before replying to it. Especially when necroposting. :)
