I have several systems installed with Mandrake 10.0 Community.  Once in a while, stuff that goes to /var/log/messages also to the console.  I looked in /etc/syslog.conf and nothing appears to go to /dev/console or any tty.  How do I make it stop?

Those are probably klogd messages. On a RedHat system you can suppress those in /etc/sysconfig/syslog with:

# Options to klogd
# -2 prints all kernel oops messages twice; once for klogd to decode, and
#    once for processing with 'ksymoops'
# -x disables all klogd processing of oops messages entirely
# See klogd(8) for more details
KLOGD_OPTIONS="-x -c 3"

I had:
KLOGD_OPTIONS="-2"
changed it to:
KLOGD_OPTIONS="-2 -c 1"
hopefully this will fix it.  Should know in the next few hours.

Thanks.
