I am a mathematics enthusiast, although I have no formal training. What I know is what I've been able to glean from searching Wikipedia.

I enjoy writing computer programs, although I have never been employed as a programmer. I've used two-dozen different programming languages, but my current favourite is Haskell.

I also have an interest in various areas of science.

On top of all that, I'm also a bad musician, a mediocre dancer, and a very bad juggler. :-P

Dumping everything to a file solves this nicely.

OK, so that's significantly higher that I had expected. It still feels somehow "wrong" to be sending this much data via command arguments, rather than through a pipe or a file or something... Is there maybe some way to use the --file option?

I was under the impression that the command line is limited to 255 characters. The text could end up being larger than that.

It's OpenSUSE, but it's a very custom install.

syslog isn't even installed.

All good suggestions. But sadly no help. Setting the loglevel did nothing. The sysctl stuff is all blank, and so is the various systemd configuration files. Although, I did see some commented-out lines that might help...

Add some details.

Nice suggestion, but I just checked, and that particular parameter is already there. (BTW, yes, the messages are prefixed with a number that looks like seconds of uptime.)

comment Kill all descendant processes
The process group looks like it might be the thing I'm looking for, but I still want to understand exactly when two processes will have the same group ID, and when it will be different.

comment Kill all descendant processes
How do process groups work? Most of the tasks in your example seem to be in one of two groups...

comment Kill all descendant processes
1. Does this kill only immediate children, or all descendents? 2. Does this address the issue where one of the intermediate descentends exits, breaking the link in the process tree?

comment Grub v2: kernel “has invalid signature”
Oh dear. This suggests that the OpenSUSE 32-bit kernel isn't signed by OpenSUSE. Damn...
