console text mode shows fedora core 5 but fc6 installed


hello,

i was surprised when last time i need text console mode from ctrl-alt+1
and it shows Fedora Core 5 text login!, but ... i think i am using fc 6 ...

[admin@darkstar ~]$ uname -a
Linux darkstar 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 14:51:19 EST 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
[admin@darkstar ~]$ cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora Core release 6 (Zod)
[admin@darkstar ~]$

Why my systems shows fedora core 5 text message in text console ?

I suspect you are not doing anything wrong, but that a mistake was made in FC6.

If you want to look into this further, I can give you some information based on the old RH releases. I cannot guarantee that FC does things the same way. If you have a file called /etc/issue, take a look at it. This is what used to get printed out before a text login prompt. On the old RH systems, this file was generated at boot time by the /etc/rc.d/rc.local script. So if you feel like it, poke around and see what you can find.

In the old versions of RH those files are generated at boot time. You might want to see if you changes survive a reboot.
