Start up messages

The start up messages are kernel messages that pass too fast over the screen not giving a human time to read. However they get logged:

dmesg -H or dmesg > boot.messages make them human readable

It is wise to check them to see where Linux has problems (e.g. HW not matching with the Kernel configuration)

dmesg | grep USB

dmesg | grep eth0

If you want to see just the lines containing USB

To delete the old messages type dmesg -c
