Pause unpause Linux boot screen
Following is what works best in Laptop:
Ctrl+S to Stop Ctrl+Q to Resume
Desktops with full Keyboard
If you have a full fledged keyboard, try
Scroll Lock and Scroll Unlock buttons.
Other suggested solutions are
Pause/Break button combination
(p.s. never worked for me, you some people reckons it worked for them.
Once you’re logged in,open a terminal window and type in
dmesg | less
and you see something like this:
[ 12.814960] RPC: Registered udp transport module. [ 12.814962] RPC: Registered tcp transport module. [ 12.814964] RPC: Registered tcp NFSv4.1 backchannel transport module. [ 12.856736] FS-Cache: Loaded [ 12.868714] Key type dns_resolver registered [ 12.912022] FS-Cache: Netfs 'nfs' registered for caching [ 12.952379] Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996 firstname.lastname@example.org).
Now you can just use SPACE BAR to scroll through the logs to find what you’re after. Quite ugly, eh!
GUI alternate is to use System Log Viewer and look for dmesg/message logs by date/time. System Log Viewer is built into pretty much any modern Desktop Environments (i.e. Gnome, KDE, MATE. XFCE, LXDE etc.).
Mine gives some errors like below:
15/10/13 10:23:43 PM testing kernel [ 0.294180] ACPI Error: Invalid/unsupported resource descriptor: Type 0x00 (20120913/utresrc-650) 15/10/13 10:23:43 PM testing kernel [ 7.124168] ACPI Error: Needed [Buffer/String/Package], found [Integer] ffff880235edb300 (20120913/exresop-590) 15/10/13 10:23:43 PM testing kernel [ 7.124194] ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.GFX0._DSM] (Node ffff8802370a2790), AE_AML_OPERAND_TYPE (20120913/psparse-536) 15/10/13 10:23:43 PM testing kernel [ 10.390634] EXT4-fs (sda5): re-mounted.

I think I’ll just ignore those errors for now!
Hope that helps. Please share & RT.
