Hello,

- I am trying to learn a little on the boot process.

- What file contains the text:

Precise Puppy Linux
Linux 3.2.29 [i686 arch]

DMDS-TST-0001 login: root (automatic login)
login [4223]: root login on 'tty1'

Shows just before x starts.. .

- Also attaching image on what i mean.

Thanks,

Best regards,
Johan

Might be worth a look in /etc/rc.d/
'rc.sysinit' etc
I'm in 412 at the moment, so there may be some variation with newer versions.
There is the init script in the initrd.gz as well, which is where it really starts.

I think all of that text is generated by mingetty, which is called by init in response to this line in /etc/inittab:
Code:
tty1::respawn:/sbin/mingetty --autologin root tty1

mingetty grabs those first two lines of text from /etc/issue.

Hi divisionmd.
You can always use the 'Pause' button top/right on the keyboard to toggle the pause function during the readout, if it moves to quick. Another option is to set the verbocity level in the boot prefs. If I remember correctly, max level 7 will give you loads of text flashing before your eyes! Very Happy

divisionmd,

You're welcome.

By the way, /etc/issue is created by /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit using $DISTRO_NAME from /etc/DISTRO_SPECS and the uname command.

I've been booting Linux machines for fourteen years and didn't know that, thank you.
