Question How to print a message from kernel module to terminal console or tty console

Hi friends,

I am newbie to Linux. I have written a small kernel module. In the module, I am just printing few string. the module is working fine. But the string are getting printing in /var/log/message file. I want to print the kernel module message on the terminal console instead of /var/log/message.

Can anybody guide me on this?

I think 2 is Standard Error and 1 is Standard out or terminal. You might be able to output message like 2>&1
