    Default Kinda basic Question

    What file would I have to go about editing to change the Welcome to BackTrack 5 message that you see in the virtual terminal, right after you type in your login credentials?

    alright so I found the file /etc/motd but it gets overwritten at every reboot so changes never take effect.. I also have no motd.tail file. Any ideas?

    hmm funny I was looking for an answer a couple of days ago too. Dude, I google and researched some and found out how to do it. I'll share, but you should google some first, its best if you learn by yourself.

    Code:
    nano /etc/update-motd.d/10-help-text
    reboot/logoff, then it should be good.

    Mine looks like this,
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    TERM=linux
    export TERM
    clear
    echo "[*] Welcome Christian"
    echo ""

    So I only get a "Welcome Christian" and then I can startx.
