Where are messages generated during boot kept?
« on: September 19, 2019, 11:26:41 PM »
I just installed TinyCorePure64 on a thumbdrive today, then booted successfully. Then I installed various programs; acpid, alsa, flax, etc. The next time I rebooted, following "Loading extensions", I see a list of error messages. The boot completes.

Where may I find those error messages?  I'm hoping one will explain why flaxpdf.tcz does not work. Thanks.

How did you install the extensions - using the apps gui, using "tce-load" or?

If you are using the "syslog" boot code, you might see some useful error messages in /var/log/messages.

If you open a terminal window and enter the command "flaxpdf", what error messages so you get?

They are not logged, but add the "pause" bootcode, and you can scroll up with shift-pageup.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

All were installed with the Apps GUI. Thanks, curaga, I'll return with the messages.

Here is the message:
udevd[133]: unknown key 'RUN(program)' in /etc/udev/rules.d/73-seat-late.rules:17

All messages are the same.

Your help is appreciated.

P.S.   I tried to start acpid manually (it is installed) and acpid fails to remain started. dbus is the same, though I'm not sure the mesages relate

Sorry, that should have been:
Code: [Select]

What did you do to start the dbus daemon and how do you know that it is not running?

It was just a test. I used the Services app in the Control Panel. But is that just a symptom of the messages I posted above?

If you want to check if it’s working do this:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start
$ ps aux | grep dbus

I'll do that. What are your thoughts about the error messages I listed above?

The message is probably irrelevant.
