WORKSFORME. Perhaps you're expecting output in xterm? Console ==
/dev/console (which usually == tty1), not the tty you happen to be
running systemctl on.
Ahh OK - I didn't understand that.
Unfortunately however I cannot test this at the moment. You see I run
that (F15) box headless and administer it by SSH'ing into it. I could
get physical access to the machine later, but then I'd also have to get
a monitor, mouse and keyboard for it (not impossible - but a hassle
Googling around it would appear that it's possible to redirect
/dev/console to a pty, so you might try that.
systemd provides the "tty" option to DefaultStandardError but doesn't
seem to offer the configuration to actually set which tty it goes to.
I'll ping systemd-devel to see if that is a documentation or design
oversight, because that would help tremendously.
You can redirect output to an arbitrary tty but
only on a per-unit basis. (In fact, this discussion has put a crazy
notion in my head to use that functionality in a script that makes
debugging services easier.)
That sounds interesting. Please keep me posted.
At least I am one step closer with syslog working, but it could
certainly be easier...
Thanks very much for your help so far. Much appreciated.
