have the ubuntu server text mode logon screen show current IP addresses
Posted on 2007-04-11
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS server - is the version. It boots to the text logon screen.
Question is how to get the logon screen to display the IP address.
The reason is that the install is a VMware Image running on a laptop, the image gets different IP addresses depending where I boot it up at, I would like to see that IP address along with the logon screen.
If there is a linux term for that text mode logon screen please let me know (tty1)?.
I used a VMware image from rPath that had this feature, but am not longer running it.
