Error while booting

Postby 19yc93 » 2017-08-11 12:13


I am new to Debian and i hope you can help me ;)

After installation of Debian 9 stable with KDE desktop i can successfully boot. But while booting there are some error messages.
So the operating system seems to works but i want to know what errors occurred. Where can i find these error messages? In which log file?

If you need further information or something was not clear described please tell me.

Try "sudo journalctl"view all message of this boot.
To only view "fail":
"sudo journalctl |grep -i fail"
I'm sorry for my bad English skills

if it ain't broken, don't fix it.
error messages are normal - to some extent.
it could mean that some driver is trying to find non-existent hardware.
it could just be a warning.
thankfully, linux is flexible enough to be fine with that - again, to some extent.

if you like, you can cover those error messages with a boot splash.
it's what most "userfriendly" operating systems do.
