Hi there,

[On Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit]

I have been trying to get rid of the boring motd when ssh-ing into the machine. I have sudo vim-ed the /etc/motd file to no avail.

Even if I add a motd.tail tail file with my content. I still get the boring and verbose:

Linux barney 2.6.35-28-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:39:03 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.10

Welcome to Ubuntu!
* Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/

As if someone will read the documentation ! :)

How do I get rid of this?

The scripts which generate the motd file are contained in /etc/update-motd.d/
