/var/log versus system crash examination
Hello debian users,
i have quite a newbee and a general question, so i will appreciate any
hints and links to a good materials and so.My problem is:
i run a kind of a long-time computation software (gromacs) on my
debian etch box, but unfortunately i receive crashes of the system
(debian gets frozen).So in order to find out the source ot the problems,
i would like to examinate the /var/log directory.
What i would like to know is the relevance of the particular logs, which are
situated in the directory.
My goal is to be able to diagnose my system crashes.
So i would like to ask for good materials to learn the logging
machinery in debian about.
