How To Log Boot Messages in Ubuntu

Here is a quick Linux tip to log your boot messages in Ubuntu.  This is great for checking for any errors or failed startups that may be happening during boot.
Edit /etc/default/bootlogd:

# vi /etc/default/bootlogd

You’ll see the following lines:

# Run bootlogd at startup ?
Change No to Yes:

# Run bootlogd at startup ?
Now every time your computer restarts, a /var/log/boot file will be created.
