OpenSUSE Install :: Autologin - Syslog - Kernel Messages - Console

May 9, 2010

What i'm trying to accomplish seems rather silly but is needed for my little project here.

I'm using OpenSuSE 11.2 as a media center PC and need it to login automatically(console not X). That one i accomplished without problems.

However, after login i can see all the info about the services that were started and that needs to "go away".

One could do a "clear" in the .bash_rc and or .bash_profile but it will still show the login prompt which i don't want to see either (i don't even want to see the blinking cursor as well).

Question: How do i accomplish that so that the login console shows only the "splash screen" without any output of the kernel,rc.status nor the "issue-file"... just a plain blank screen ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Inconsistent Autologin / Can't Get Autologin To Work Consistently?

Nov 29, 2009

I've been on 11.2 KDE for about a week (clean install). Previously on 11.1 Gnome. Everything's great except I can't get Autologin to work consistently. It worked perfectly in 11.1 Gnome! In 11.2 KDE sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I set it up as root in both Yast and System Settings.

Red Hat :: Disabling Kernel Messages On Console?

May 17, 2010

is there any way to disable kernel messages on the console? The problem I have is that it is almost impossible to work on the console due to a flood of file system errors from the kernel.

I've checked /etc/syslog.conf and disabled kernel logging to the console. Even with syslog turned off the messages still flood the console.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Bootsplash/console Background After Kernel Update

May 16, 2011

Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable. On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?

P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)

Ubuntu :: Direct Syslog Messages To Particular Tty?

Aug 24, 2009

I wrote a script which will run in ubuntu box and will display in tty1, without loading the gdm. The problem is when I plugged in a usb drive it will cause some messages to be printed into the current tty user logged in.

Like : [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through

This is really disturbing when a user is running the script. Is there anyway that I can direct all the messages to some other tty which I don't use.

OpenSUSE Install :: Preventing Autologin That Happens When KDE Can Resume Session

Jan 2, 2011

I usually shut down openSUSE in KDE by clicking the shutdown icon and selecting "Turn Off Computer". When I boot back into openSUSE, my session resumes automatically without it asking for my password.While I don't mind KDE resuming my session because it saves time, me not having to reenter my password is a security risk. How do I turn off the autologin?

Server :: BIND Messages Filling Up SysLog?

Dec 9, 2009

I have the following BIND messages filling up my SysLog that I'm hoping someone can explain to me:


Dec 9 09:35:44 dns2 named[30103]: client query (cache) '' denied
Dec 9 09:35:47 dns2 named[30103]: client query (cache) '' denied


I would expect this behavior if " and" wasn't a domain that I hosted. But this is a valid domain that this server should be answering for. In my named.conf I do have the


allow-query { any; };

option on every zone. This is my slave server and I have the primary shut off so I can test this slave server. FYI: So far queriers still seem to be working. The pages for the sites are still coming up via the internet.

General :: Logging Ssh Messages In A Separate File Using Syslog-ng?

Jul 2, 2011

I am facing a problem while trying to log SSH messages in a separate file, say, /var/log/ssh_logs. I have tried modifying the syslog-ng.conf file as follows:

filter f_ssh { facility(auth, authpriv) and match("sshd[[0-9]+]:"); };
destination d_ssh { file ("/var/logs/sshd_logs"); };
log {


But still I am not able to get the ssh logs in the new file. They continue to go to /var/log/auth.

Security :: Configure Shorewall To Allow Syslog Messages From Router?

I have my system set up to where the router(dd-wrt) will send it's syslog messages to my Linux PC system. I am using shorewall as my firewall. I have two questions: How can I configure shorewall to allow the messages from my router? If I use my router IP address to allow the messages to come through the firewall, will this be a great security risk as anything from the internet can come through on that router ipaddress?

Server :: Redistribution Of Inbound Syslog Messages To Syslogd?

Apr 28, 2010

RHEL 5.4 i want to be able to do redistribution of inbound syslog messages to syslogd. as example, my syslog.conf has in it at the end:

*.* @
*.* @

my sysconfig/syslog file has "-r" as the only option for syslogd. any messages generated by the localhost will be sent to the two remote servers, but messages that come into this box (udp 514) only get logged locally and do not get sent out to the remote hosts.

you may ask why do i want to do this. because i have several syslog servers (for security purposes) and many of my net devices are configured to send syslog to all the syslog servers, hence each device is sending way too much duplicate udp-514. so i would like to minimize the udp-514 coming out of the devices, have all devices send to a central syslog server, and then central syslog server do distribution to the other syslog servers. others have also called this "syslog proxy". or, if not with syslogd, how to achieve this (preserving the original syslog message host info, etc)?

Ubuntu :: Suppress Eth0 PHY Reset Messages In Syslog?

Feb 9, 2010

I'm getting 10000000's of syslog messages :

"eth0: PHY reset until link up"

- I have wireless and don't normally use an ethernet cable. From Googling round I found this bug report which appears to match the problem, however I do not feel happy/competent enough to recompile the driver as suggested in the bug fix. Is there a way to configure the driver so that it only tries the eth0 connection a limited number of times? This is Ubuntu 8.04 2.4.26-27 and SIS 191 chipset

CentOS 5 Networking :: Syslog-ing Messages From A Particular Host To A Particular Log File

Oct 12, 2009

I've just configured my Linksys RVS-4000 router to syslog messages to remote syslogd server (i.e. my CentOS5 machine). Redirecting messages was easy, but now I'm having difficulties to redirect those same messages received from Linksys to a separate log file. By default, all these messages are logged to /var/log/messages, and after browsing manual pages for syslog, syslog.conf, and syslogd, came to suspect that what I want isn't possible.

Software :: Filter PA/module-alsa-sink.c Messages From Syslog?

May 4, 2009

GNOME has adopted the pulseaudio infrastructure and it has grave errors reading from ALSA sinks. One of the many effects is that every 2 or 3 seconds a 3 line error message is written to the syslog to the effect of 'ALSA woke us up...blah blah blah' and it is filling up everyone's syslog. What I need is a workaround to just stop these messages from being written so I can level set and figure out a long term course of action.

OpenSUSE Install :: Enable Autologin With Xfce / No "Login Settings" Option In This Menu?

Dec 26, 2010

I'm using openSUSE 11.3 with Xfce 4.7.0 and I want to enable automatic login. What I have tried so far:

1) YaST -> User and Group Management -> Expert Options -> Login Settings. This didn't work because I have no "Login Settings" option in this menu.

2) Editing variables "DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN" and "DISPLAYMANAGER_PASSWORD_LESS_LOGIN" via YaST -> /etc/sysconfig Editor. This didn't work too and xdm was still asking about name and password no matter what I set here.

3) I don't know how to configure xdm, so I tried to replace xdm with gdm. Gdm worked, but application "gdmsetup" was missing from my installation (YaST simply don't offer this package) and I don't know how to set up gdm manually, so I ended without autologin again.

Ubuntu :: Can't Send Log Messages To Console.

May 16, 2011

after upgrading to 11.04, natty, I have a problem with rsyslogd.

In previous releases I went to:


and uncommented the lines under comment:

# I like to have messages displayed on the console, but only on a virtual
# console I usually leave idle.

This was redirecting the log messages to a console I could get to via Ctrl-Alt-Fwhatever.

In natty, this no longer works. When I switch to the relevant console I get a blank screen with a blinking cursor.

The file /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf still exists. A new arrival is also 50-default.conf.ucf-dist which, as far as I can tell is a clone and which I have also modified like 50-default.conf.

The file /etc/rsyslog.conf (configuration file for rsyslogd) exists and its last line reads:

$IncludeConfig /etc/rsyslog.d/*.conf

which presumably should force rsyslogd to read 50-default.conf at startup.

Looking at the running processes I can see that rsyslogd runs.
