System: FreeBSD 4.9-stable

KDE (3.14) is crashing on me and I need to capture the error messages
(so that I can submit my problem to the this mailing list).

I'm logged in as root. And I'm in tty0.  KDE crashes (core dump) and
produces several error messages along with mention of the file

I checked the contents of "/var/log/XFree86.0.log" and it does not
contain the error messages produced by the crashing KDE.

Have you tried something like
startx >& kde.log


Thanks. That worked perfectly. I was thrashing around trying to use "tail" without much success.

So now I have the error messages. On the next problem...


I don't start up in kde but at the cli and use startx to fire off kde.

Yes, I should have mentioned that. I use startx too to start kde.

I suspect that you did a partial update of some of the recent library changes. Something is linking to a new library but has the old structures.


So I need to find a way grab or capture the text output generated
from the crash.

I've tried opening pico in tty1 and using the mouse in tty0 to
highlight (and place in the buffer?) the error messages on tty0.  No
go. It's either that the buffer gets cleared when switching between
tty0 and tty1 or that highlighting the text via mouse isn't working.

I've gone through 2-years worth of FreeBSD mailing list messages but
I can't seem to come up with solution.

Hints? Thank you.
