In Linux, I've written some scripts to be executed during boot and played around with the various ways of installing them. For larger scripts I'll put in
/etc/init.d and link the appropriate
/etc/rc.d/rc?.d runlevels. For smaller scripts, I'll append to
/etc/rc.d/rc.local. This process seems to be running smoothly.
Now I've tweaked one of my scripts and it is failing. I'm having a heck of a time diagnosing it because I can't seem to capture the error output. I've checked
/var/log/messages and poked around the rest of
/var/log but can't find anything of use.
Does anyone know:
- are these error messages automatically captured somewhere?
- if not, how can I capture the stdout/stderr from my init.d scripts?
Thanks in advance.
