Prevent syslog from spamming the console

Sometimes it seems syslog is determined to spam the tty’s with useless information from the system logs. This happens on some systems, and I have yet to figure out why, because I do mostly the same install on all of them. Anyway, here’s how to get the damn things to stay in the log and not spam the console.

bash# vim /etc/sysconfig/syslog
bash# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
