I double checked and there is only dmesg there. Oddly enough I
found out that when it 'locked up' today I was able to hit
CTRL-ALT-DEL and it cleanly shutdown. So the machine isn't locked
up but the screen is. I haven't quite figured it out just yet
but that's a major step forward.


PS I hope to get time to look at the bug list later on.
