  I am trying to arrange to see my console messages. This is 2.2.1R.
the /dev/console is 

crw-rw-rw-  1 root  wheel    0,   0 Jun  5 21:18 /dev/console

Xterm -C never picks up anytrhing, and xconsole says it can not open 
the console. This looks like a permissions problem. What should they
be; and who should be the owner. Whne I exit from Xwindows, I find
all the messages on the tty screen where I logged in.
