So, sw2wolf, do you know what the diff(1) utility does?

Here is your assignment:
  1. Power down the system using shutdown -ph now.
  2. Boot the system, & save the output of dmesg(8).
  3. Power down the system using halt -p.
  4. Boot the system, & save the output of dmesg(8).
  5. diff(1) the two dmesg(8) outputs against each other.
  6. Post the output of running diff(1) on these two files.
  7. Explain what the output means.
