Default Server side/Where are clients logs placed?

Guys,

This sysadmin is having issues with clients booting using vesa. They
have tried to change that by editing the server side conf. However,
where should they read logs in order to see what clients are actually
using?

Mauricio,

You need to log in to a TTY on the client (CTRL+ALT+F1) as root and look
in /var/log.

If you haven't set a root password in the client chroot, do so and
update the client image. Reboot the thin-client and then log in.


Cheers,
Jordan/Lns

ok, this is the actual need:
* sysadmin needs to get some kind of "inventory" about the drivers
being used by each client.

the reason:
* sysadmin have gotten low "graphic" performance on the client side,
probably because they are using a generic vesa driver or alike.

symptoms and tries:
* all clients consoles start in red and show no text
* sysadmin has tried to see text by setting kernel with vga=xxx and
updating clients images with ltsp-update-kernel and ltsp-update-images
but no results

Any suggestions will be very appreciated
