    Slowing the shutdown process


    Hi

    I got some shutdown errors, but because the errors messages are displayed too fast, I can't read them. All the stuff are unmounted, so it is not possible to log the messages. Any clues ?

    Take a peek at /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog maybe.

    Enter zcat /var/log/syslog. into a terminal as root but don't press enter instead press tab twice. You will get a list of older syslog files which will be zipped. By looking through one or more of those using zcat you may find your shut down messages.
