IRIX installation log

Unread postby Rincewind » Mon Jan 31, 2011 10:35 pm


installing IRIX an a blank system there where some messages what I should do after installation, like adding some MIME types. After the reboot I looked for these logs, but was unable to locate them anywhere in /var/inst or /var/adm.

Have they been saved? And if yes, where can I find them?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards,

You should find the installation log as /var/inst/INSTLOG; the system log as /var/adm/SYSLOG.
