Hi folks,



I have lots of messages like these appearing on my local CentOS 5.2
consoles:
> Oct 17 12:03:29 machine kernel: printk: 1 messages suppressed.

as source address



So the question is: What process logs directly to the console bypassing
syslog/kernel log facilities? How can I find where to stop that?


It's the kernel itself.

In a VC:

setterm --msg off


That did the trick, many thanks.

But now I have 1000s of messages like
"printk: 4 messages suppressed" in my /var/log/messages.

Can I get rid of that, too?

Dirk
