Since thre are no stupid questions here.....
Where do I find the boot log? I've got some things that fail during boot but it scrolls so fast I can't read what they are.
Forgive my ignorance....brand new linux user. I know arch is supposed to be for those already familiar w/linux but I've been reading the forums and the wiki, and the documentation is such that even I, a windows user, should be able to figure all this out...with a little help.
Welcome to Arch.
Run in terminal:
To make a copy:
dmesg > /<directory>/my_boot_log
To check your hardware download hwd:
pacman -S hwd
thank you very much
the /var/log/ folger holds a lot of usefull logs like the kernel messages
folger = folder
folder = directory :twisted:
ArchLinux (x86_64) w/ kdemod
somebody has coffee on the brain
I am not your friend
tried the things suggested but it didn't show what i was looking for...any other suggestions? During the boot process whilst loading various...things...network and something else fail...where would be the log that shows these things?
Have you looked in the /var/log directory as Mith suggested?
You can check /var/log/everything.log
try removing the first character of /etc/issue so the screen isn't cleard after booting.
and the network is probably not working, because the right modules aren't loaded, try hwd as suggested above.
I don't know if i'm blind or what, but I don't see anything in any of the logs pertaining to the network failing. The thing that confuses me is I have internet connectivity so I don't know what the error means. I tried the hwd -s command
Ethernet : nVidia Corp.|nForce2 MCP Networking Adapter module: forcedeth device: eth0
forcedeth? Doesnt sound good...although that doesn't mean it's bad. :?
Thank you for your help....i've learned from your guy's help and that's what matters (to me)
I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it eh?
