Boot up Message


Question.

when the system boots, just before the command promt it reads
tinysofa enterprise server release 1.0 ( Emily )
Kernel 2.4.26-5tsfirewall on an i586

the last part after everything
boots?


is there any way to change that so it reads my own message, it's not the cat /etc/issue one i know that one

TT

Thanks AltF4

I found it in /etc/release

Is there a way to bring up a message before logging in via ssh
instead of reading just ( login as: )

I changed that file /etc/release. which changes the top message before showing all the green ok's

how ever it didn't change the bottom one before the last part after everything boots?

/etc/motd bring me a blank file

/etc/profile puts the message after you have loged in
I put this in just after HISTSIZE=1000

Code:
etc/profile

echo "_____________________"
echo ""
echo "     Welcome to"
echo "    Tomato Land,       "
echo "      $LOGNAME."
echo "_____________________"
echo ""
How ever this is not what i was after..

/etc/login.defs brings me - Configuration control definitions for the login package.

And i dont know what i'm looking for, i'm still queit new to this stuff
I wish to change the message at the end of the green ok's before the login promt so it reads Welcome to Tomato Land the Land of the Red Tomato's etc etc..

TT
