Where is /var/log/messages on Ubuntu 12.04-b1 (Precise) ?

To enable /var/log/messages is disabled in the beta-1 version of Ubuntu Precise Pangolin (download here), do the following:

Edit /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf and uncomment the lines

*.=info;*.=notice;*.=warn;\
auth,authpriv.none;\
cron,daemon.none;\
mail,news.none -/var/log/messages

Then restart the rsyslog daemon:

# service rsyslog restart
