I hate that alert that I keep getting when in a terminal. When ever I try to type or use nano those message fill the window and mess everything up. how do i stop them? thanks

Check out /etc/syslog.conf; see which messages are sent to "all", change it as you wish [perhaps redirect them to a file/tty etc.]

Or if you want to remove everything from the console:

# /etc/sysctl.conf - Configuration file for setting system variables
# See sysctl.conf (5) for information.

#kernel.domainname =

# Uncomment the following to stop low-level messages on console
#kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7

i believe to prevent messages to printed on the console you should uncomment this line per nx5000

#kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7

kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7
You could also use 3 4 17 if you want once you have edited the /etc/sysctl.conf run

#/sbin/sysctl -p

some times prink throws messages in the /var/log/messages

you can grep using $cat /var/log/messages | grep "your message"
