Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
system-logviewer does not show all dmesg messages. The last 20 lines
of messages displayed by dmesg do not show up in the Kernel Startup
Log section of system-logviewer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-logviewer and look at Kernel Startup Log
2. Compare to output from dmesg command.
3. Note that dmesg shows 20 more messages.
Kernel Startup log is the file /var/log/dmesg, it is not the dmesg
buffer. This is not a bug but a potential RFE, changing description
