I have absolutely no idea what that means, but now it works, thanks!

Re: /etc/issue "2.0" - My ASCII art version with Arch logo and text

Hey... is it possible to edit the login prompt too? E.g. instead of "hostname login: ", "Username: ".

Re: /etc/issue "2.0" - My ASCII art version with Arch logo and text

Hi guys, sorry 4 rise this post, but I wonder if you know a way to refresh the issue file, every some time (may be 2 o 3 secconds) to show useful state, like users, CPUs, uptimes, conntracks (case routers), etc etc etc.-


Thanks!!!

Re: /etc/issue "2.0" - My ASCII art version with Arch logo and text

I found it..... sorry for disappoint you Daenyth     just add -t n (n secconds) just before aggety respawn in inittab..

i.e.
c0:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 -t 5 9600 ttyS0 linux

(I'm using serial connections thats is the 9600 ttyS0)

The rest is make a script who rewrite the issue file in /etc/rc.local

Since dav7's one seems to end up not showing what I see all over the place, I'm using the smaller one from baverage (Uh, could misspell the nick :s)
Anyhow, thanks both of you smile

I decided to do my own version of this, not as informative, but a very nice motd imo.

Open nano, and in the editor first press CTRL+V then press CTRL+[. A "^[" will appear - this is your escape character. Duplicating escape sequences is one of the harder things you can transmit over the web, since the escape itself evaluates to character code 27, which is 4 characters below the start of the printable ASCII character code map which starts at character 31. This is the reason I used a bash script that uses "echo -e" with "\e" in the string at the appropriate points - which translates to character 27 - to re-insert the escapes where they're supposed to be.

I did some investigation into this, but I think you'll need to edit the sourcecode of something. Thing is, I'm not exactly sure *what*. After poking around using the 'strace' utility (something every curious person should have installed, run 'strace somebinary' to run something and trace it or 'strace -p PID' to latch onto something already running and trace it then see floods of info on what files the target binary/PID opens, file-based sockets it communicates over, and similar info). I concluded that *something* - very likely PAM - is fishing the correct string out of a locale file OR somewhere within itself, since my locale is en_US (I see no reason to make it en_AU tongue).

Windows was made for looking at success from a distance through a wall of oversimplicity. Linux removes the wall, so you can just walk up to success and make it your own.

It's not an issue, it's an motd.  It could be used as an issue though, just won't have the fancy info that the other one in the thread has.

Not as fancy as the above but may appeal to some. Would probably look better on your machine if you were to edit the colour scheme - my whole computer is quite orange-ey themed.

nice one, however ZOMGZOMGZOMG your computer is called the same as my desktop (and my laptop is called neuromancer)

Yes and no.  You can't show the time and such but you can show an MOTD like I had above.  Change your ssh config to enable a banner and point it to your banner file.
