Description ryanm 1999-06-08 20:39:04 UTC
It would be nice to have a --nohostname option (or a
customizaton syntax for a /etc/mingettydefs file) so that
the hostname is not automatically placed next to the
"login:" prompt.  It just seems to me one of those things
that should be configurable.  I'm thinking of the ability to
"profile" the OS running on a system because of the
inability to remove the hostname.

Keep up the great work!
