    strange eth* devices related messages appear/are logged > why? > fix?

    I finally made the problems i explan here:

    go away (dunno really how, this time the pppoeconf internet connection didnt stop working after reboot).

    now i have a "problem", if im not using a GUI, i noticed there were WIERD messages flooding my screen, messages that are logged in 2 diferent files, and im attaching both as examples (with just a few messages, both files were 16++ mb in size, and rapidly growing)

    the more ETH* interfaces i have enabled, the more messages appear, and more frequently.

    Any idea why i get those ? how to fix the reason for they to appear, or at least, to prevent them from appearing ?

    Do you have logging turned on? This looks like you are logging every packet.

    loggin where ? i never configured loggin in the Operative system, and i configured no loggin rule for iptables.

    i commented out some lines from rsyslog.conf, that mentioned the files that were getting this things logged into (message, kern.log and syslog), and now there is no loggin of this messages, but other stuff that was logged there is not logged either.

    also, i still get this messages in the non-gui terminal.
