I have installed
netconsole using the instructions given here.
dmesg | grep netconsole says everything is OK, but I won't believe it so easily :)
How can I make Ubuntu generate some kernel message in order to see if
netconsole really works and sends everything to the other computer?
logger -p kern.alert "test message" # this apparently talks to syslog only echo "test message" >/dev/kmsg
and wrote a small program that just did a segfault. All this generated entries in
/var/log/kern.log, but not in
dmesg and it was not copied via
netconsole to the other computer.
So what can I do to see if netconsole actually works?
