name of log for error/warning messages seen during boot

Something is going on during boot, but the messages fly by too fast to read. I looked at a few logs in /var/log, but my eyes are glazing over. What's the name of the log for error/warning messages seen during boot?

/var/log/boot was the first one I tried, but it does not contain the error messages that fly by. My eyes never were good, but I swear the messages have something to do with BIOS.

Hi, These can be revealing sometimes... You may need to be root to access these files.

search dmesg for errors,

dmesg | grep -i "erro\|fail\|warn"

search xorg for errors,

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "(WW)\|(EE)\|(??)"

I hope this helps you.

Can you take a video of the boot messages, then play it back a frame at a time? Or post it here so someone with better eyes can try to read it?

@GlennW

Bingo (the first one). The error messages are the same.

Let me think about those messages. I have Devuan MATE installed on a different external SSD -- the one in question is Cinnamon, with both being Chimaera -- so I can compare the boots.

Another strangeness is that maybe last month I updated the BIOS to the most recent one (F.62). I tried reinstalling the previous one (F.61), but the error messages remained the same. I downloaded the last seven BIOS updates and I think I'll try each one, going back in time.

By the way, because of the Realtek wireless chipset, I installed linux-image-5.18.0-0.bpo.1-amd64_5.18.2-1~bpo11+1_amd64.deb. Otherwise there was no connectivity.
