I found the answer, now I just need to know if there is something I can do about. I found out through trail/error/LOTS of Googling that it ISN'T sendmail thats the problem. AND its not syslogd... Its apparently the kernel. On the ARCH list, about a year+1/2 ago, they were talking about things, and PHK made the following comment : "Spitting things out on /dev/console today will more likely than not, print stuff on a syscons or serial port which nobody looks at. For that reason, we added a hack to the kernel to make all stuff that went to /dev/console be sent to syslogd(8)" So, its the kernel forwarding things BACK to syslogd. Anyone know how to write to the console WITHOUT this happening, or without syslog repeating it?
