Make sure you have something like the following in your /etc/syslog.conf and rem
ember that it only logs errors or whatever it's set to log in syslog.conf.  Try 
opening a vt (alt-fn#) and logging in as root.  That should pop up in xconsole.

/etc/syslog.conf
daemon.*;mail.*;news.crit;news.err;news.notice;*.=debug;*.=info;*.=notice;*.=war
n;cron.none     |/dev/xconsole
