You must have lost /etc/syslog.conf

I know some setups send all this stuff to one of the ALT-Fn consoles
(/dev/tty8? Though I've never looked for it), but you should be able
to redirect it easily enough:

        *.=notice;*.=warn       |/dev/xconsole

& etc.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
