My original posting:
To capture console messages between console logins in X11R5's xdm
environment, one can use the DisplayManager._0.setup resource, the
Xsetup_0 script, and the xconsole client. How can one accomplish
the same in X11R4's xdm?
Many thanks to Dirk Everling (firstname.lastname@example.org) who replied:
You can't. Or, at least, I couldn't. This was one of my major reasons
to update from R4 to R6.
To prevent console messages from showing in X11R4 I edited the file
/etc/syslog.conf and replaced every occurence of "/dev/console" with
/tmp/console.messages, a file which I created new each time the Sun
had to be rebooted (using an entry in /etc/rc).
