sosreport doesn't capture "dmesg" output
Last modified: 2009-09-02 03:30:03 EDT
Description of problem:
sosreport does not capture the output of "dmesg" at the time of running the sosreport command. Comparatively, the older commmand sysreport does capture this output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run sosreport
2. unpack archive
3. look for the "dmesg" file
found in the root folder
I ran a find in a recently received sosreport, and these are the files containing "dmesg" in the filename:
$ find . -name "*dmesg*"
/var/log/dmesg is not the file I am looking for, as /var/log/dmesg is created at boot and once klogd starts, nothing more is added to this file.
