    Which says that a setting of 15 would get 32k then.
    I take it this (for an i386 system) is the correct file to edit?

    kernel/ikconfig.h:CONFIG_LOG_BUF_SHIFT=14 \n\
    Mmmm, that says do not edit, auto-generated, so how about this one?


    which contains only that single line. Its now 15 & we'll see.
