Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2001-07-30 13:04:06 EDT

Description of problem:
As of now, /etc/issue is always regenerated in rc.local. Even though it's a
matter of editing the aforementioned file, it would be nice if there was
some way to pick up a ready to use issue. For example, we have rc.local to
check if /etc/issue.hdr is present and if it is, this file gets copied to
/etc/issue. Otherwise, normal generation takes place.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  n/a

As of beta3, /etc/issue is no longer touched by *any* bootup process.
