/var/log/messages on Mint 11

Postby rvsjimbo » Thu Jul 07, 2011 12:42 pm

Hi All,

I'm trying to get VPN (PPTP) working, and as part of this I wanted to look at /var/log/messages, but its not there. Has it simply been disabled by default, and if so, is there an easy way to re-enable it?

Anyone else had problems with VPN connections on Linux Mint 11, and if so can you point me at a solution? I'm getting "VPN Connection Failed, The VPN connection failed because the VPN service failed to start."

Thanks!

Paul

You can try the Log File Viewer application that is available in the Control Center . . or Menu -> Administration

ps: - Moderators, please move this thread to a support forum.

This starts out as a system logs gone AWOL post but the ultimate goal is to get VPN working so I moved it here.

The log file you are looking for is called "syslog" in the Log Viewer.
