I dont' know if I am getting it right, but I have understood that the dmesg kernel messages are stored in /var/log/messages by the help of syslog, and that syslog was adding a timestamp before each message, is that right?
In that case, why are not all messages of dmesg stored in /var/log/messages and would there be a loglevel we could change so that it woudl log all messages from dmesg?
