Anybody know the best way to write/read/commit/document/upload errors in the kernel log in Ubuntu 10.04?

Are there a tool suitable for this type of job in the UBuntu Software repositories?


I guess you can also use gnome's application:

System -> Administration -> Log File Viewer

alt text

alt text


For those with server/no monitor access you can access the logs using tail

tail -f /var/log/kern.log

There is a nice graphical viewer for the kernel logs by the people at KDE.

dmesg command can also be used to display the kernel log. It can be used as follows.

dmesg -k -w
