Is there a logfile of the messages that are printed onscreen underneath the splash screen in 16.04? If so, where are they, or what is the name of the file?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Use dmesg to print kernel buffer ring logs, or use journalctl -b to get messages from last boot, you can take a look at /var/log/syslog too.

  • Does journalctl put info into /var/log/syslog? I have been wondering if that was the case. – George Udosen Jul 22 '17 at 12:37
