howto display console messages in ssh session


Hi

I have logged as e.g. user1 via ssh into my machine. Then I perform `su -` to switch to root user and I don't see debug messages which are normally displayed when I log as root via system console.

How to display console messages in ssh session ?

thx for help.

Not sure what kind of console messages you mean. Any examples?

By the way, try this:

Code:
dmesg
