Description Bill Nottingham 2002-03-15 21:12:25 UTC
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 09:30:56 UTC
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 2002-03-21 04:19:28 UTC
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...
