11.04: rsyslog.conf: no kernel messages on tty12 anymore

Hi All,

until kubuntu 10.10, I had kernel messages (error and the like) on /tty/12.

For this to function, the entry in /etc/rsyslog.conf looked like this:

        *.=notice;*.=warn       /dev/tty12

Somehow, since I upgraded to 11.04, this feature doesn't work anymore.

Is here anybody in (K)Ubuntu-userland who knows what's the problem here?

(unfortunately, this problem is unknown to the Google search engine)

Thanks for any help,
