really quick question:

in my /etc/login.defs, what is my erasechar, killchar, umask, and ulimit
supposed to be set to - i am having problems with my <del> key working -
slackware 1.2.8

1. Need source to login that uses /etc/login.defs

        I know that the login that originally came with the SLS (approx.
1.0) distribution made use of a file /etc/login.defs to control many
aspects of its behavior.  Unfortuately, it wasn't setting supplemental
groups properly, so I switched to another (which isn't as configurable).  I've
been looking for the source to the original, and haven't found it in the
SysV init package, poe-igl, or getty_ps; can anyone point me to the
particular version of login that uses the login.defs file?


(email please)

2. IOMEGA Ditto Dash with 3200 Eazy Tape

3. /etc/limits and /etc/login.defs with agetty

4. sparc and cdrom

5. then it must be pam (not in /etc/login.defs, not in /etc/default/useradd)


7. changing /etc/login.defs does not have a effect on linux RH4.1

8. Slackware 3.2, FreeBSD 2.2.1 and configuring for X-Windows on a NEC VERSA 4230 Notebook

9. xdm equivalent to /etc/login.defs???

10. meaning /etc/login.defs

11. /etc/login.defs

12. Ftape & /etc/login.defs

13. /etc/login.defs not longer supported ???
