Hey Guys,

I just did a rebuild of one of my Gentoo systems from scratch, and aside from a few problems I managed to correct, I'm stumped at this one.

Code:
login as: crimjob

This is \n.\O (\s \m \r) \t

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
Password:


/etc/issue contains the same, but I'm pretty sure it should look something like "This is hostname.iso-domain (kernel arch version) HH:MM:SS"

Anyone have any ideas what I might have messed up?

There is also the file issue.net which can be used when logging on remotely. ssh however, will only use it if you set the option in the configuration file and will not interpret the escape sequences shown below.

Haha well don't I feel silly. Of course I wasn't using that before, that's why I didn't notice it. I just could have sworn the first boot after livecd said it as well, but now that I've restarted, tty0 actually shows the correct information, it's just SSH sessions that show it incorrectly (or I guess correctly depending on my settings).

Thanks :)
