message logging at bootup
Has anyone else had any luck getting /etc/init.d/boot to log its messages
As per suggestions from this group I have modified the line in inittab that
executes /etc/init.d/boot to look like:
si::sysinit:/etc/init.d/boot 2>&1 | logger -is -p user.info -t /etc/init.d/boot
I have tried several priority levels on user. but to no avail. I can tell
that logger is working to some extent because these messages on the console
are preceeded by the new tag
My syslog.conf file looks like:
# /etc/syslog.conf: syslogd(8) configuration file.
# $Id: syslog.conf,v 3.3 1995/02/24 23:44:14 imurdock Exp $
# You have to use tabs here!
# I like to have messages displayed on the console, but only on a virtual
# console I usually leave idle.
# The named pipe /dev/xconsole is for the `xconsole' utility. To use it,
# you must invoke `xconsole' with the `-file' option:
# $ xconsole -file /dev/xconsole [...]
>From syslog.conf I would expect user.<anything> to end up in either messages
or debug. What am I doing wrong here? The only messages I get in messages
are from the kernel!
Almost any help would be greatfully accepted.
