Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2001-07-30 17:04:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010702

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:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.n/a
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  n/a

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