It's not hard to find (once you to look for it:):
bigfoot:~# apt-cache search less console
aview - An high quality ascii-art image(pgm) browser
console-log - Keeps a less syslog running on tty9
konsole - X terminal emulation for KDE
The winner is ... console-log.
bigfoot:~# apt-cache show console-log
Maintainer: Marc Haber <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: less, run (>=0.9.2-4), console-tools
Description: Keeps a less syslog running on tty9
console-log keeps your syslog and your exim mainlog running in a less
process on tty9/tty8. It also makes sure that this console is visible
automatically after system boot so that a crashed system at least
leaves the syslog readable on the console before reset. Using less
makes searching, tagging and highlighting possible.
apt-cache is your friend. Learn how to use its features :)
