I'd like to report a bug with my wireless card cutting out (seemingly) randomly, but I don't know what log files to include.

I know a tail -F of a particular log file when the card cuts out would be invaluable.

I just don't want to submit a bug report with no log files that will get lost in the shuffle.

Right now, I'd attach the following:

  1. lspci | grep -i ethernet
  2. lshw -C network

But I still need some sort of log file.

Normally when reporting the bugs the bug reporting system tells you what files to include, but if they don't then:

/var/log/dmesg
/var/log/daemon.log
/var/log/messages
lspci -vvv

Possibly

/var/log/syslog

But you can simply install:

Debian BTS

and just follow the instructions. :)
