console logging messages


I have a new driver, which prints all debug messages to console and /var/log/messages.

I wrote new set of priority values to /proc/sys/kernel/printk, which solves the problem. But, after every reboot this file is getting the default back, which makes the huge debug messages appear again.

How can I make my changes to /proc/sys/kernel/printk permanent. There should be a different way of doing this, and I'm not able to find it.

FYI - it is an appliance (not a PC/workstation). Logging into it and echo'ing is not right in this situation.

In /etc/sysctl.conf add:
kernel.printk = permanent

Then a sysctl -p I think to register the changes.
