Thread: How to view syslog?

    Default How to view syslog?

    Hi,
    I have OpenSuse 11 64bit. When I connect my USB hard drive I get an error message telling me to view the syslog.
    How can I see the syslog message?

    Thanks

    With the command dmesg

    I know this is an old post, but Google brought me here, so I guess it wont hurt to clarify.
    I dont think syslog is the same thing as dmesg.

    In OpenSuSe, I found that /etc/messages replaces syslog.
    If you need to grab the logs in realtime, try to execute
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Hope this helps someone.

    Yes and no. It is two views of the same thing.

    There is no such file "/etc/messages".
