Description Kees Cook 2000-03-21 22:53:15 EST
Using getty I just noticed that the @S string does not
resolve to "2000", but "100" instead.


My /etc/issue contains:

@T @S

which just now produced:

21:56:41 21 March 100
Comment 1 Kees Cook 2000-03-22 09:40:59 EST
Uh, duh.  "@D" not "@S".  I typo'd that one.  The y2k-broken part
is @D.  @S is, of course, just fine.

Fixed in getty_ps-2.0.7j-11.
