2.3 Installation Logs

The following log files are created during installation:

/root/install.log

Contains a list of the software packages that were installed.

/root/install.log.syslog

Contains the syslog messages that the installation generated.

/var/log

Every installation also creates a Kickstart file, /root/anaconda-ks.cfg that you can modify to perform automated installations. For more information, see Chapter 3, Installing Oracle Linux Using Kickstart.
