For some reason, every time I plug in a USB device, a whole bunch of messages get dumped onto the terminal. (Saying something about device IDs, buffering modes, etc.)
How to I prevent this from happening?
Several people have asked me things, so let me summarise the potentially-relevant information I have collected so far:
The stray text appears on whichever virtual terminal I'm currently looking at. Each line is prefixed with what looks like the system uptime.
quietparameter is already on the kernel command line.
The current setting for
6 4 1 7.
As best as I can tell, the
syslogpackage isn't even installed. (Nor
rsyslog.) Certainly there are no configuration files for it in
Init is definitely
/etc/sysctl.confcontains only comments.
