Thread: Network interfaces names displayeed between issue text and login prompt

  1. #1

    Default Network interfaces names displayeed between issue text and login prompt

    On my machine, each virtual terminal, there's displayed names of network interfaces. It is displayed between issue text and question about login name. Is this behavior correctly?

    I remember that. When I had that link available, I would have posted it. I have to search for it, like you have to.

    This is actually pretty normal on server distributions, would make sense to have it on TW as well as it makes things a lot easier on a glance.

    I noticed the same too.

    This is explicitly defined in /etc/issue, which itself is dynamically generated when interfaces are added/removed. So yes, it behaves as intended.

    I think that is a bit a short explanation. Intended by who?

    This seems to be something new. Thus the intention was invented not to long ago (/etc/issue does exist for ten of year already and it was definitely not dynamically generated, but had a default value at installation, to be edited by the system manager when wanted).

    It was here https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...t-after-update although it went largely unanswered, I'd been watching that thread as was curious about it myself.

    Whoever added this (mandatory) package to Factory:
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/issue-generator
    Code:
    # /etc/issue is no longer a default file, but is auto-generated at bootup
    Requires:       issue-generator
