[CentOS] Trouble brewing in dmesg... any ideas?

dmesg > dmesg.log


cd /var/log/
ls -lat | more

i liked the old days when dmesg, /var/log/messages and other syslog stuff
was displayed automatically on a tty console.  I tried a softlink from
/var/log/messages to tty9, but didn't have any luck.  Would it require a tee
or a mod to dmesg?
