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.

In /etc/sysctl.conf add the following:

    # Do not restrict viewing access of /var/log/dmesg.
