#3116 assigned enhancement

Show syslog tail when booting hangs

Description

As mentioned on the mailing list (http://www.freelists.org/archives/haiku-development/11-2008/msg00144.html):

Me: Would it be possible to check if the boot process hangs and after a while display the last few lines of the syslog?

Ingo: That should be possible. Basically the initialization thread would need to report its progress more often (after every line) and another thread would need to monitor it.

I don't know of any recent cases where booting actually hangs; boot failures usually end in a KDL now. Close as no change required? :)
