Re: Noisy ipmi0 after bootup? (really other kernel noise)

Note that the messages I sent are (more or less) boot time messages.
They may be from /etc/rc/* type script execution, but they're
certainly no later than that - they are after init has started I think
(when it gets to that stage of the boot process it isn't always easy
to tell).

Er, yep - they're green for me, too. I just don't usually watch boot messages so hadn't noticed them. I'll get them fixed soon (later today, but probably after I get home from the day job that pays the bills).

Those messages I don't mind at all, they're easy to deal with.
The ones I'm talking about are kernel printfs (or some similar kernel
function, xprintf or whatever).  (That is, they appear on the console
in kernel message colour, rather than white...)

Yup - noted.

Stuff from logerr is all just fine, and as you say, easy to adjust.

Great, thanks - but as far as the kernel part of it goes, perhaps just
"absent" (other than for dramatic events) would be better.

Agreed - at least they shouldn't show up in a normal boot. I'll see if it makes sense to keep them for debug boots.
