14.3.13. Linux kernel messages are not printed on the console

Question:
I expect to see some Linux kernel messages on the console, but there aren't any.

Answer:
This is absolutely normal when using the ELDK with root filesystem over NFS. The ELDK startup routines will start the syslog daemon, which will collect all kernel messages and write them into a logfile ( /var/log/messages ).

If you want to see the messages at the console, either run "tail -f /var/log/messages &" on the console window, or stop the syslog daemon by issueing a "/etc/rc.d/init.d/syslog stop" command.
