sorry for such a basic question, but is there anyway to get a list of the login errors that I get upon booting my computer

I have fc1 and spamd seems to fail upon logging in.

Thanks

Do you mean login errors, or start up errors...?

dmesg, might be what you want...

i never messed with spamd before but most login related logging is at: /var/log/secure

dmesg will show your kernel buffer ring, lots of output from the boot process.

/var/log/boot.log will show which services which come up at boot time.

$ last will show u recent logins
$ w will show u current logins

hope this helps.
