How to fix-> Login:Password:

Post by Chris Lambrig » Sat, 24 Dec 1994 12:32:57



I need some pointers from any of you geniuses who might have some
ideas on just what is causing this. I don't know just what was messed
with, but lately our prompt is getting run together the first time it
gets echoed on logging in. Like this:

Login:Password:

So ..the user has to hit enter once to get back to just the Login:
Then things work fine. It isn't a real problem as it doesn't seem to
effect anything, but it's irritating no less and I'd like to know
what's causing it and how to 'fix' this. This just seemed to pop up
one day after some other users were working on something, but they don't
seem to know what might have caused this. So.. any ideas will be
appreciated.

Thanks.

1. fixing localhost -> DNS Server -> NAMED -> NDC -> NOTFOUND

I'm trying to make localhost work in netscape (instead of routing to
http://www.localhost.com as it does now) on Redhat 6.2 system on a local
lan connected to external internet via netopia analog router).

I set up a hosts file to define localhost as an alias for
localhost.cox.dom (internal fake names). While that once worked, I
touched something somewhere and it no longer does.

By following the cryptic syggestions at www.localhost.com, I decided I
needed to set up a DNS server for the local lan (8 machines) via
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO-3.html under "A caching only
name server">

All went well til the section "Starting named", which says type
"/usr/sbin/ndc start". There's nothing there by the name ndc, nor under

thing called under Redhat 6.2?

Or is setting up DNS the wrong thing altogether? I'm basically trying to
get a combined Windows 2000 Server, Linux, and Macintosh combined
network to cooperate.
