less /var/log/Xorg.0.log will let you look at it. If you have a USB
stick, you can plug it in, and - as root - do something like:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/temp
to mount it at /mnt/temp , then copy it there, so you can paste it from
another machine. the /dev/sdb1 will vary, it depends on many hard disks
you have. Do:
both before and after plugging in the USB stick. The one that only shows
up after is the USB stick.
