Hi all. Just a quick query here -
I've had an unsuccessful attempt at installing Linux (both RH7.1 , then
Mandrake 8.0 ) . I found (via the weekly Linux Journal "mailout" ) that
when you *already* have Linux installed, (and are trying to upgrade) , you
can print a copy of /var/log/dmesg to help if you have any problems.
My query is - " If I do **not** yet have Linux installed (and I'm in the
process of *trying to do so* ) , **is it possible** for me to zing the
messages that apppear to a file ? "
What I mean by this is , when I go to the dos prompt and fire off
"autoboot" to install Linux ( I can't boot from CD on my system) , you get
the usual pile of stuff as the installer chugs away. I want to be able to
save those messages by sending them to a file.
It would seem that a dos pipe command might do this , but I don't know if
it's possible . (And given that Linux *ain't yet installed* , a Linux
command probably ain't possible either .... :-))
Many thanks in advance for any help received !
