how do i get the error logs?
i was about to type in the terminal when it stalled again and printed
Message from syslogd@(none) at mon apr 14 12:22:55 2008

See the Boot Cheat Codes from the Backtrack wiki.

How do i do that?
Boot codes or Cheat codes are parameters you can add during boot to syslinux to alter the behavior of Backtrack. Boot codes must start with "bt" (e.g. bt nodhcp) at the boot prompt. Below you can find some of them.
also if you can get to a prompt type then cut and paste the output to
This may contain some error message info that may be of use.Code:#dmesg
Also have a look at the other code that I posted above about logs and error messages.
Take your time and you will get it.
So I have a new MB and just tried the dual boot. I too experienced the stall. To be honest, I was too lazy to search for what exactly is causing it. I did notice on a quick grep to my messages log file that there was a note about running irqpoll as a boot code. So I put "irqpoll" in my lilo.conf file under append. It's not exactly a fix, but it does get rid of the mouse stall for now.
