where are the installation logs stored while installing rhel 6.3

user285825 asked:

During installation of, say rhel 6.3, the control+3 virtual console shows some text logs. I want to review these logs after / during installation (but obviously the display gets truncated). How can we do that? Is there any syslog method or the log is saved somewhere in ramdisk / file system?

Thanks

My answer:


Your installation logs will be saved to

/root/install.log
/root/install.log.syslog

You may also find more detailed logs in:

/var/log/anaconda*.log
