After a little digging, the missing information in /etc/issue is generated at
boot time, normally in rc.local. rc.local contains only one line (touch
/var/lock/subsys/local) Reassigning to the initscripts packege.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-04 11:29:54 EDT
Um, that /etc/issue is correct. It's filled in at run time by the getty of your
choice.
Comment 4 Elliot Lee 2001-08-05 14:26:34 EDT
Update your *getty*/util-linux/telnet-server packages. The values are now filled
in at runtime.
