Long ago I only needed the content of "/var/log/messages", and could monitor this continuously via "tail -f /var/log/messages". These days the dmesg ring buffer is the interface, but I've never found a way to "tail -f" this continuously. Can anyone here suggest any tricks to monitor dmesg in real time without polling?
