I have an old PowerPC laptop (old Mac Powerbook G4) that I am running a variant of Debian Squeeze on (MintPPC 9).
I keep getting Kernel error messages when I am connected to a particular wireless network but not at other times. I suspect, but have not proven, that it is arising from the networking module. The error messages overwhelm anything I am doing at the time (e.g. overlaying a CLI Emacs display) but do not otherwise seem to influence the function of the machine, even the networking seems to soldier on.
Is there a way to redirect error messages from syslogd specifically to an error log or possibly
/dev/null but to leave other error messages going to
stdout. I know that
2>> will direct error messages but since I did not consciously start syslogd I don't know how to do so.
Sometimes the error messages are more elaborate but here is an example:
Message form syslogd@debian at Dec 10 09:48:02 ... kernel:[ 720.749515] -----------[ cut here ]---------------
