Getting PAM to shut up

When I restart a TTY and on bootup, I get annoying messages from PAM, like:


DON'T PANIC, the Free Rescue CD
Documentation in /doc/ can be read with elinks.

dontpanic login: root (automatic login)
login(pam_unix)[5918]: session opened for user root by (uid=0)
Last login: Thu Dec 21 23:43:06 2006 on tty2
login[5930]: ROOT LOGIN on 'tty3'

How can I stop them?

I'm using mingetty.

Installing syslog-ng solved the problem.
