Description Bastien Nocera 2003-09-09 06:15:20 EDT
Add an entry at the top of /etc/syslogd.conf:
kern.*   /var/log/kernel

Restart syslog:
service syslog restart

logger -p kern.warn "Warning test"

The "Warning test" doesn't get logged in /var/log/kernel, although the file is
created. A "*.*" entry will log this message to /var/log/kernel fine.
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-08-04 19:42:07 EDT
Messages generated by 
  logger -p kern.warn "Warning test"
are handled by syslogd as user messages and get logged to

Genuine kernel messages, from the kernel, are handled by klogd
and 'kern.warn' messages would be redirected to /var/log/kernel
by 'kern.warn /var/log/kernel' in syslog.conf.
