    3333 * `open /var/log/syslog` (the primary system log used by Haiku, akin to on screen debugging during boot)
    3434 * `listimage | grep drivers/`
    35  * `ints` (from within Kernel Debugging Land -- KDL )
     35 * `ints` (from within Kernel Debugging Land -- KDL)

     38=== Kernel Debugging Land ===
    3739Enter the kernel debugger by invoking ''Alt-SysReq-D''.
    3840Then the `ints` command will output information about handled and unhandled interrupts .
    3941You can get out of the kernel debugger back into a usable system by typing `co` (for `continue`).

     43=== On Screen Debug Output ===
     44This is only relevant when Haiku fails to boot on your machine. Before the Haiku boot logo appears, press the space bar. This will display a text menu. Select ''Select safe mode options''. Near the bottom, ''[ ] Enable on screen debug output'' will be listed. (Note: The other options could be enabled in an attempt to boot Haiku. If Haiku will boot only when one or more options are activated, be sure to mention which ones.) Finally select ''Return to main menu'' and then ''continue booting''. One or more pages of text will display on the screen, only the last few lines need to be included on your ticket.
