printk does not output in the /var/log/messages for kernel compiled with debugging


Hi all,

I'm running kernel 2.6.15.7. When I compile the kernel with no debugging in Kernel Hacking option from make menuconfig, I see the log output in /var/log/messages coming from the various functions defined in kernel code. (e.g. - arch/i386/kernel/setup.c) . However, when I compile the kernel with debugging support I don't see those message be shown. For each case I can see the output from device driver.

I even tried with the kernel parameter debug and removing quiet.

When I see the debug enabled kernel output I can see one line after the kernel loads which I don't see when the debug disabled kernel loads -
hotplug: tty seq=1973 HOME=/ PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin ACTION=add DEVPATH=/class/tty/ttyc5 SUBSYSTEM=tty

I've been trying this for several days but could not make through.

Here's part the .config file -

Do you miss only messages from startup or also the later ones?

I'm not sure about the later outputs. But I can see the driver output from the beginning with or without debugging support any time.
