I did some searching already on the forum archives and on Google so Im terribly sorry if I repeat this.

Basically all I want to do is have the screen clear after booting and all the rc-scripts finish. Just before I get a login prompt I want the screen to clear so the prompt is at the top of the screen. Likewise when I logout I want the same thing to occur. Is there a way to do this? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

For logout, you could make an alias to clear;logout.

... that you can do it like this:

/usr/bin/clear >> /etc/issue.net

Basically, whatever is in /etc/issue.net is printed right before the login prompt, so you can also put whatever else you want to be a little greeting in there (see http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=2972). As long as nothing changes it (and I don't think anything does unless you edit it like in the link), you can just do what I said above to make it permanant.

Excellent! Thanks... that's a great post link. Some of that stuff should find it's way into the online Gentoo docs for the install. Thanks again.
