If I try to access system.log from my non-admin account I get the message "Unable to read the file"
Is there any way to make Console.app prompt for administrator credentials to view logs the user isn't authorised to as happens elsewhere in the GUI?
Presumably the message is because I'm not authorised:
A1398% ls -la /private/var/log/system.log -rw-r----- 1 root admin 1807993 Jan 23 16:14 /private/var/log/system.log
sudo /Applications/Utilities/Console.app/Contents/MacOS/Console will open Console.app with sufficient rights but it is rather inconvenient.
