my dmesg output looks really weird


I'm new, but this still looks weird to me. I'm trying to look at my dmesg output to see what's going on with my usb phone, and I get this(below). I've only posted a section because it goes on a bit, but there's nothing else other than more of this sort of thing.
Is it anything to do with my internet connection starting at boot?

Thanks!
Xenny

These are from your iptables firewall. There is one or more LOG targets in your firewall setup. To see them, type '/sbin/iptables -L' (as root).

Heya

Thanks. I didn't know what iptables was so I've just had a quick read on Wikipedia, but will need to know more before really getting the relevance of the logs (below). I didn't get anything from /sbin/iptables -l, but did from just iptables -l.

What has happened to all the other dmesg stuff? How do I see it?! I feel I have to keep apologising as I know I'm probably asking pretty dumb questions at the moment! Sorry.

Thanks again

The other stuff is still there, you just have to sift through it all to find it. Grep may be helpfull if you know something about what you are looking for.

I did try "dmesg | grep -i usb" and I got nothing. I've got usb devices working fine, and can see them all in lsusb.

The log file may be getting truncated, and the messages of interest are lost before you are getting a chance to see them. I assume the messages of interest are being generated at boot time. Perhaps you can reboot, and re-generate the messages you are interested in. Are you sure the messages of interest contain the string 'usb'?

I am loath to suggest modifying your iptables setup, lest it put your system in jeopardy somehow. If you elect to do this, you should to it with caution.

You could try inverse match (select non-matching strings):

dmesg | grep -v SFW2

Rod and abisko

Cheers I've got it sorted - Rod I rebooted and it was fine afterwards.

Thanks for the inverse match suggestion - much better and it prompted me to have a proper look at grep
