As evidenced by your reply, if you can see the file, it's so much easier to look
at and massage with base system utilities, thanks for the showcase; if it's not

Anyways, Alfredo, right, as Arch says you cannot configure your system,
you NEED, you absolutely MUST use journalctl to access your logs.
