Description Bill Nottingham 2002-03-15 16:12:25 EST
Running startx prints the versions of net-tools and hostname to stdout/stderr.


# startx
net-tools version 1.60
hostname 1.100 (2001-04-14)
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-03-16 04:30:56 EST
Sounds to me like your hostname command doesn't understand some parameter
being passed to it perhaps.  What does running it with "set -vx" show?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-20 23:19:28 EST
It appears to be because the startx script is redirecting the output of hostname
through grep, but hostname prints its version to stderr instead of stdout...
