Name ASCII Tux-drawing-software please
 
There is a program that draws Tux in ascii with options to add your system name, kernel version, moom phase, center Tux, Draw Him to the Left, to the right, Reverse video...

You'd use it to create your /etc/issue file or perhaps put it in your /etc/profile to show the information after login.

What is the name of this program. Googled "ASCII GENERATE TUX" and other things like that..

Thanks!

Try googling for ascii art Linux. If that doesn't help, I'll try to get my son to log in with what he uses (he's in another town).

Actually I found several pages of ascii tuxes, but not a program that generates a tux combined with system information (I just thought of another cool use, use a cron job to replace the /etc/issue every hour with uptime included)

Took some serious googling but I think the program you want is called linux_logo

I'll look that up! Thanks

For my future reference what was the winning google search?

ascii tux ... but that just got me close ... wound up reviewing some pbone .rpm searches to finally identify it.

Thanks that's the one. I have downloaded it just in case it's not already on my redhat 7.0 system.

RH 7? Whoa, dude. Time to upgrade! Newer distros have more advanced capabilities, like OpenOffice, and both Gnome & KDE have advanced greatly since RH7.3. Just a suggestion.

GrueMaster..
Yeah I'd like to, I am running on a toshiba 2545CDS (amd k6) and newer stuff does not like it. I tried Redhat 7.3, but it refused to see my ethernet pcmcia card, Fedora 3 says "not with that processor you don't"

But 7.0 seems to work OK. I'm not brave enough to try 7.1 just yet.

p.s. I use fluxbox anyway. :^)

Yes I just got linux_logo and it is the one you want Just run "linux_logo -a -c" on the command line to have tux created in ascii art with all of your system information beside him.
