log files

Postby gardenair » Tue Mar 15, 2011 1:53 pm

I am using cent os 5. I daily check mt log general log files as
# less /var/log/messages

When I try to view /var/log/boot it show me message


# less /var/log/boot
/var/log/boot: no such file or directory

I even can not see logs of /var/log/apport.log,/var/log/dmesg,/var/log/daemon.log

Kindly guide me how can I access log files of the said services ?

thanks
garden
