If this would be better put in another forum, let me know and I'll move it.
I run a dual-boot system, winxp and had F16-64 but just upgraded to F17-64. Both were installed from a live CD.
I upgraded to 17 due to problems in 16 which were mainly caused by my clumsy additions/deletions of apps. Learning from my mistakes, 17 seems to be OK so far as I personalize it.
With 16 I noticed that on startup, when I clicked on it rather than xp, the screen would go black and there would be lines of text which would flash and disappear before I could read them. Then on Power Off the same thing occurred.
This occurs with 17 as well, but there are fewer lines of text both coming and going.
The leadin being complete, I come to my question
Is there some way to anchor this text so it can be read? For example, as I remember in 16 on closing, I would see many lines of S(I?)RST failure (error 16). The number of this comment seemed proportional to the time I spent in Linux.
I keep thinking that if I could read them it would be helpful in solving issues.
