I installed netconsole using the instrunctions 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? I tried:
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?
(My Ubuntu version is 12.04)
