Description Stephen Moehle 2004-11-13 14:18:56 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):
Log Viewer 0.9.11
 Copyright (c) 2002-2004 Red Hat, Inc.

How reproducible:
Every time.

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.
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2004-11-17 18:13:17 EST
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
and severity.
