printk messages in Fedora 2
I am new to using linux and I am currently running Fedora 2. I was running an earlier version of Linux (pre 2.5.40) and I did some simple device driver development. Prior to the Fedora version of Linux, I have been using printk to add messages to the /var/log/messages file during the device drivers initialization, while it ran, and when it was unloaded.
With Fedora 2, after fixing some compile time issues I have a module that loads using insmod, however, the printk messages are not showing up either in the messages file or on the console screen.
My question then is, do the messages from printk get put somewhere else in Fedora 2 or is there something that I have to do to allow the printk messages to be put into the messages file. If there is something that I have to do to turn this "on" could someone please provide me with the specific things that I need to do to make that happen.
Thanks in advance for your help.
