Default errors on log out

Hello,

When I reboot or shut down my machine, I am getting some error messages
on the screen that I can't catch well enough. Is there some way to
capture these messages to file so I can examine them on the next boot?

Thanks, Ray Parrish

You should be able to find them in the syslog after you restart the
machine.

Well I don't. It doesn't seem to catch them. I've just been through
every log file shown in the System Log Viewer, and there are no error
messages that occurred during shutdown, just those messages that occur
after each start up.

So, how does one trap the error messages shown on the shut down screen?

Later, Ray Parrish

I'm at work now on an AIX box, so I cannot be absolutely certain of the
Linux naming standards, but you should find all the logs you're after in
/var/log

Syslog will be in there and providing it's been configured to log the
usual information, you should find all messages from startup, normal
running and shutdown in there. If you're not finding the information
you're after, try tweaking the syslog.conf file to increase the detail
level of logging.
