Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl status rhel-dmesg
2. Shows dead
/var/log/dmesg does not exist
Per 7.4.x the file existed, and the systemd service was
Actually, it's disputed if the systemd service was happy in 7.4.x, but regardless the file DID exist. /var/log/dmesg
So perhaps an overlap with rsyslogd? It's an open question.
My understanding is that /var/log/dmesg contains output from the kernel and kernel modules. So, it should be created when the kernel first boots up. My RHEL Atomic Host 7.5.1 system shows no such file. Although the kernel output is not shown in that file (since it doesn't exist), I can see the output by typing "dmesg".
Is the fact that the file is not created a bug? If so, do you want us to tell people how to use the dmesg command to see that output?
