I am running debian on zaurus in pure console mode (I find a gui pretty impractical for my use of the zaurus), but I am plagued with annoying messages spewed all over my console normally at the most inappropriate times!

The worst culpret is wifi which keeps writing diagnostic stuff all over whatever I am currently doing.

I've looked at the syslog config and I can't see anything obvious there, is there somewhere where I can turn this off?

To remove the message on the console, edit /etc/sysctl.conf and uncomment this line:

CODE
kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7

Thanks so much! biggrin.gif
And thanks for your kernel too!

/me goes to study sysctl.conf further!

This works pretty well, but I recently got a Socket bluetooth card, and it seems to let through messages like:

"bscp_recv: Out-of-order packet arrived, got 1 expected 0"

Whatever the cause of these messages my card seems to work fine, but is there any way to get rid of them?
