[realtek] Disabling Kernel messages, More info
Fri Jan 4 19:39:00 2002
Below is sample output. You can see how messed up it gets. I also have
some printf()'s in my start program followed by a fflush that appears to not
be written to the console. I assume it may have something to do with these
overlapping messages. I have two reasons to disable level 4 printk on
1. Clean up the mess
2. I want linux to be invisible to the end user.
Anything that is need to know can be displayed, everything
will be sent to syslog.

Subject: Disabling Kernel messages
Every time I bind an address to an interface I get kernel messages. I
believe these are level 4 and only informational. Is there a way I can
config the kernel to keep a level 4 messages in the klog and not display
them on the console. They'll still be available in klog but I do not need
the clutter at boot.
