cron, or something, chatters too much
Trying slowly to recover from what I think was a "dist-upgrade" that
downgraded everything until damn little works.
Ah, but I did finally get nVidia stuff working, so at least I'm on-line
after a fashion.
PROB: While I'm working (TTY1 as root) I get interrupted every minute or
so by about 10 lines of:
PAM_unix (cron) session started for user [root, mail,
amvis-stats] . . .
PAM_unix (cron) session ended for ....
I guess the information is useful ( except that none of the components
involved are configured to do anything useful yet ).
But I don't want it on my TTY !!!!! I pops into the middle of an info
screen or my editor or whatever else I'm trying to do. And it's not
always easy to get rid of.
How can I tell PAM or cron or whatever to log its complaints somewhere
else; or to block any daemon logging messages from my TTY?
