on ubuntu 11.04, why isn't rsyslog logging my kernel msgs?

probably something stupid i'm doing but on my 64-bit ubuntu 11.04
system, i'm loading kernel modules that print simple strings using
printk() but nothing is showing up in /var/log/kern.log.
i've verified that rsyslog is running, and here's the salient bit
which i've always understood is to send all kern-level messages to
that log file, but nothing shows up.
i've even used "logger" to try to send a message like that:
$ logger -p kern.info "hi there"
but, still, nothing.
i've read in a couple places that going back to syslog-ng will fix
things, but i'd still like to know what i'm doing wrong. thanks.
