    In trying to debug issues I sometimes look at the log files in /var/log. Seems they are being hit quite a lot - it's hard to find whatever I'm looking for. So I tried to figure out why. For instance these line appears often:

    2010-01-25T04:22:33.016448Z [101498] palm-webos-device user.info powerd: POWERD
    -ACTIVITY: PowerdActivityStart: (com.palm.wan.til-8720) for 5000ms => true
    2010-01-25T04:22:33.016662Z [101498] palm-webos-device user.info powerd: POWERD
    -ACTIVITY: PowerdActivityStop: (com.palm.wan.til-8720)

    However, in /etc/PmLog.conf, doesn't Rule3 say NOT to log those lines?

    [CONTEXT=<global>]
    Rule1=*.*,stdlog
    Rule2=kern.*,kernlog
    Rule3=*.!info.powerd,-stdlog
    Rule4=*.!err.UpdateDaemon,-stdlog

    Anyone understand this stuff?

    Seems when the level is used positively (without the !) it means that level or higher, but when used negatively it means strictly lower than (and not equal to) that level. Changing the info to warning and rebooting stopped those messages. Just running "PmLogCtl reconf" didn't do it, I had to reboot.
