/var/log/messages is empty, and also dmesg shows nothing
 
Hi, running kanotix-cpx-mini usb as a hd install. Problem being /var/log/messages is empty, and also dmesg shows nothing. Also when klogd starts up at boot cpu runs at 100% and still no messages. Any help much appreciated.

Is /var/log/messages writeable?

Yes it is - all looks ok. :(

Pardon my ignorance, but what is "kanotix-cpx-mini usb as a hd"?

Solved - CONFIG_PRINTK=n in .config, had missed it on compiling my custom kernel - set to =y and all working. Thanks for your help
