    N00b question, i know. But i'm trying to diagnose why my TP won't boot (after a hard reboot), and there's an impossible amount of chatter in /var/log/messages, so i'd have a much easier time analyzing the log if i could pull in the entire file rather than opening it in VI and scrolling around.

    To anyone telling me to "just Doctor!", sorry, no. This machine has had all the databases fail, besides objects.db, which remained functional until the hard reboot, and as a result, has not synced to Profile for six months. My last manual backup was a week before it failed, so there's a fair amount of stuff i'd rather keep, like a week's worth of Memos and browser history.

    I will be Doctoring later today to use it for Palm Profile reverse-engineering, but first i'd rather see what's wrong and back up my databases, app data and USB partition.

    Edit:

    To answer my own question, it's:

    Code:
    novacom get file:///var/db/main/objects.db > /home/x/objects.db
    and similarly, to send file:

    Code:
    novacom put file:///var/db/main/objects.db < /home/x/objects.db

    I wonder if you could use WOSQI's receive file tool.

    The boot process is far enough along that your suggestion may just work.

    And yes it did.

    Thanks. I see a lot of...

    2014-11-29T00:51:03.533921Z [5739] webos-device user.warning activitymanager[2223]: [activitymanager.systemmanagerproxy] Subscription to System Manager failed, retrying: {"errorCode":-1,"errorText":"com.palm.systemmanager is not running.","returnValue":false,"serviceName":"com.palm.systemmanager"}

    ...and some "permission denied" when messenger services try to load. No visible filesystem errors, just three years worth of junk somewhere in the system, that something is stumbling over

    So i may just tar up and copy all my databases, app installs and throw in the towel... or make an image of this config to try to solve the problem at a later date.... decisions, decisions...

    I've been sleepy, so i missed a couple of things. There's a fair amount of JSON parser errors, and then there's this:

    Why am I getting an error message when I run these commands?
    Code:
    novacom get file:///var/db/main/objects.db > "C:\Users\User\Desktop\objects.db"
    novacom get file:///var/log/messages > "C:\Users\User\Desktop\messages"
    Error:
    Code:
    bad or error response from other side: 'err -1 unrecognized command'

    EDIT: It worked when I ran the command during webOS bootup instead of webOS recovery.
