If you just want to analyse kernel messages, read /var/log/syslog

I installed the NUT monitor from the Ubunut Software Center. The Ubuntu Software Center lists version 2.6.4-2.3ubuntu2 but when I look at the NUT Monitor ABOUT the program has version 1.3!

I am replacing an old computer running OS/2 as a file and print server for my home LAN with a new computer running Ubuntu. I moved the UPS serial connection from the old computer to the new one but am having problems getting UPS logging to work. When I boot the computer UPSLOG starts but is not finding the UPS so the log is full of useless data. How do I find which file starts the UPSLOG?

As a side problem it appears that the UPSLOG does not operate as the documentation describes. I added a file for the logrotate program which does rotate the log but other than that does not appear to work. When the logrotate program runs the logger stops when it gets the "kill -HUP" signal instead of continuing with the new log file.

I have read the readme file but there is not much about installation. I have looked at some documentation on the internet trying to get this installed but the documentation does not match the configuration files I have on my system. Anyone know where I can find documentation that matches the version I have?

I am running Ubuntu 12.04.2 and run the updates manually on a regular basis from the command line. I noticed that the Kernel gets updated too often...
I know I am supposed to reboot the machine after a Kernel update, but that means rebooting every two days. One of the things I like to do is run the uptime command and smile :-)
1. Why does the Kernel get updated so often?
2. How do I find the change log, so I can decide if I need to update / restart the machine?

Ubuntu 13.04 (Gnome) is telling me that my /boot partition on (/dev/sda1) is 96% full.

Is the best option to boot from Knoppix & resize the partition or is it safe to delete all the old kernels to free up the space? If I can safely delete the kernels, what's the best way to go about it?
