    mr hong has been asking these questions for quite a while.
    no, i wouldn't want to see the server he's managing in action.

    but still, i can never quite make up my mind whether he's really really clueless, or maybe his english is just really hard to understand...
    i'm always on the verge of grasping that he has a real problem...

Specifically, what do you mean by "back from a reboot"? Are you saying that it doesn't come up to a login screen? Or what, exactly?
    Hi Rubberman,

    "back from a reboot" means the server shows fine again after a reboot.
    So besides /var/log/messages, what else log do we need to check?

    Thanks,

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    So, the server is fine after a reboot, but something caused it to crash in the first place? That information should be in one of the /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog files. My CentOS server uses /var/log/messages. My Mint (Ubuntu) system uses /var/log/syslog files.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
