Post what is linux equivalent of solaris' /dev/sysmsg?


Hi all. I would like to modify the /etc/syslog.conf on a RHEL5.3 system in order to tweak some logging for an application. On my solaris10 system, we have an entry such as this:

kern.notice;auth.notice /dev/sysmsg


I notice that there is no such beast (/dev/sysmsg) on RHEL5.3. It is my assumption that /dev/console would be the best bet here. So, with that in mind the entry would look as follows:

kern.notice;auth.notice /dev/console


Any thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance gang!

Meatloaf.
