Hi Joel,

You need to set {error_logger, false} or {error_logger, file, "MyFile"} in
the kernel
application. Details depend on how you start the node on which the tests run.

If you start it by hand, you do:

erl -kernel error_logger false

If you start a slave node:

slave:start(myhost, mynode, "-kernel error_logger false").

Otherwise in a .app file (check app(3) documentation).
