Pop-up Login motd in OpenSuse 11.1


Not sure this is a beginner question but I'm not sure I'm really a beginner either but in some ways I am.

I'm trying to get a pop-up banner for users when they login and it's a bit different in OpenSuse 11.1 than in other Linux OS's. Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks,
Jason

Hi, welcome to LQ!

Which Linux version(s) *do* provide "pop-up motds" (not that I
fully understand what that would be)? I haven't seen any on Debian,
RedHat, Slackware, Suse or the *buntus ...



Cheers,
Tink

Open Suse 11.1..."pop-up motd" probably not the best way to describe it. I should say a pop-up banner before a user logs in warning them not to do stupid stuff like surf porn etc etc.

Is that command line or something Gooey?
