Managing Dmesg Restrictions
I get irritated by pedantic default security configurations on Linux systems. I understand the precautions and I believe conservative security is sane. I still get irritated. Especially from the perspective of a home user.
One such option is running and viewing
dmesg output. There is a simple way to disable that restriction.
/etc/sysctl.conf add the following:
# Do not restrict viewing access of /var/log/dmesg. kernel.dmesg_restrict=0
