During the bootup process, after the kernel loads, the system beings starting services such as sshd, cupsd, acpid, etc. The scroll by rather quick and then the login screen appears and I don't have time to see what is being printed on the screen. Some of the output looks as if I need to be fixing or addressing an issue. Is there any way I can see the output of those services as they start? I looked through the logs in /var/logs, but I do not see a log file containing that information.

As an example of the output I'm referring to:

Code:
Starting cupsd..... [ok]
Starting sshd...... [ok]

Look in /etc/rc.conf for rc_logger=, it will either be no or the line will start with #. Uncomment and/or change to YES as below.

Code:
# rc_logger launches a logging daemon to log the entire rc process to
# /var/log/rc.log
# NOTE: Linux systems require the devfs service to be started before
# logging can take place and as such cannot log the sysinit runlevel.
 rc_logger="YES"


Then you can check /var/log/rc.log to see what happened.
