it depends on your syslog daemon setting. Assuming you're using plain
old syslogd, perhaps you need to adjust /etc/syslog.conf to contain:
kern.*                                                 /dev/console

IIRC, desktop environment such KDE (I only check it on KDE 3.5.x) will
catch such message which is thrown to console and display it in a pop
