I compiled a kernel and now it is in an endless reboot cycle. I figure I can fix the problem with a boot cd or dvd. Does the kernel write to the log file if it doesn't finish a reboot? I just want to see what is causing the problem so I can take it out of the kernel. Also it has been a while since I looked at a linux boot log file about 1997 or so. All I remember is that it was in the /var directory and the kernel was 2.0.30 in those days. This is Slackware 13.1.

I don't know for sure but I don't think kernel actually writes to any log. Not sure how far in the process you are getting so I can't say where to start.

Might re-compile in with debug or very verbose output to see more info.

Some else may have a better answer.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
