Hi.
The answer to this is probably obvious, but I can't find any log file which gives the entire screen output from booting into VL6.0 until the log-in box appears. boot.log contains only a fraction of the messages which flash past.
Thanks.
Andy

dmesg is also a good resource.

Thanks for the suggestions, there's a heap of information in there. I was surprised that some of the logs stretched right back to last March when I installed the system. Still, none of them give quite what I want - perhaps the text scrolling past on boot-up is not logged as such.

I think you can press pause on the keyboard during boot to pause the boot process so you can read the stuff on the screen.
