    Reading the screen, while logging out

    Reading the screen, while logging out.

    While logging out there comes a black screen, that looks, like the kernel information,
    but it passes too fast, to be able to read it properly:

    How am I able to get that exact same message to read an a "not moving picture", on a page?

    I know, there is a System Log, but it does not show the same information.

    Thank you.

    The messages actually come from the close-down scripts in /etc/rc0.d. I suggest you look in them. Thanks for writing a brief request this time.

    It depends on how long that message stays on, otherwise if it goes like a sec, then set your snapshot software to work of some key, say like "printscrn", then wait when that pops up, and take the shot.Either way u can do the following, "cat /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/S20halt"
    All the best

    Er, how does printing the halt script (/etc/init.d/halt is less to type, BTW) help the poster see the kernel shutdown messages?
