No, I don't think if you do that (which would be nice) that it should
log as a kern message. The facilities provided are:

auth, authpriv, cron, daemon, kern, lpr, mail, news, syslog, user, uucp
and local0 through local7

The local0 facility looks like the best choice, with a priority no
higher than info. man syslog.conf for details. But can this be done from
a script or does it require binary to make the calls?


The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government
off the backs of the people.
