    [all variants] Re: change the login prompt

    Try running "man login"

    "login" is the command which actually handles the login screen as seen on the non-X ttys.

    I'm not sure what you can actually change, but it seems a bit configurable...
  2. [other] Re: I wonder if this can be fixed, color issues with vim through screen/ssh

    Try forcing vim to use 256 by running

    :set t_Co=256

    Do other applications support 256 colours over SSH (there's several scripts around which will make the terminal show you all the colours it...

    [SOLVED] Re: My root directory is empty

    The fact that the file system type for / is "rootfs" and there is no partition id (e.g. /dev/sda1) means that what you're seeing in / is NOT your system root, but a minimal image designed for...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Problems with /dev devices since update

    If there's anything up with the symlinks in /dev, especially to CD-ROM drives, it's usually a problem with udev's cache of devices.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Donating computer to charity how do I wipe my HD?

    I'd boot from a live disc and run "shred -n 2 /dev/sda" (or whatever your disc is.)

    shred will overwrite the file/disc with random data but it's a lot faster than dd'ing from /dev/random. -n 2...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wrong CLI shell

    Try using adduser rather than useradd. It may be that useradd doesn't set the proper default shell which you would get with adduser.

    Interesting... What is $LANG set to - this could be causing the shell to misread the key sequences.
