    The Laptop system logs

    Asus 1000H netbook
    Knoppix 7

    Guys, where do we look for logs of the netbook ? The dmesg command is good - providing valuable info. What takes the place of var/log/messages ? A casual look in the var/log directory does not show anything that may help.

    If you want system logs for Knoppix (flash disk installation or HD-installation) do as follows:

    1. rename '/etc/syslog-knoppix.conf' to '/etc/syslog-knoppix.conf_orig'
    2. install "anacron"
    3.
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart

    I forgot to write: for HD-installation you also have to install "logrotate".
