is there an replacement or a new location in Version 10 for /var/log/messages ? it is there in V4 and V5 but not in V10.
my understanding is that ubuntu moved the functionality to /var/log/syslog – but this file does not exist either.
Not exactly a new location but a different way: I use dmesg -f for my purposes
ok. so the file itself or the ubuntu alternative is not used in V10?
because in kb.igel.com/igelos-10.05.500/en/diagnostics-8620578.html there ist still the /var/log/messages file named under section “IGEL Linux 10:” “In the log file /var/log/messages, search for cert_agent”
Right, but let‘s see if someone is correcting me🙈
I created a WIKI page for cli commands with an dmesg -w entry:
In V10 you can use journalctl
nice 🙂 . the parameters seems to be the same, at least I can substitute my usage of
“tail -n 20 -f /var/log/messages”
“journalctl -n 20 -f”.
added it to the WIKI
