I think I don't mind the messages, but they're on the "wrong tty"
Having read man syslog.conf and /dev/MAKEDEV I think it's possible to
have /dev/console point to another tty..
# "makedev console c 11 0" would appoint ttyv11 to console if I
understand correctly (?)

Is this true? Can /dev/console be "connected" to ttyv11 instead of the
first one?
