Anaconda Logging
Introduction
Anaconda tracks all of its activities in logs. This includes:
changing installation steps (that roughly correspond to different screens in the graphical installer)
storage devices detection and manipulation
installation media detection
network initialization
kernel messages
calls to critical methods within anaconda
calls to external programs
Logging on the installed system
During the installation the logs are stored in the `/tmp` directory:
Log files
`/tmp/anaconda.log`
the general installation information, particularly the step changes.
`/tmp/storage.log`
storage devices scan and manipulation (hard drives, partitions, LVM, RAID), partitioning
`/tmp/program.log`
calls to external programs, their output
`/tmp/syslog`
