Re: [K12OSN] Login prompt on console



Well, when I did rpm --verify util-linux it said /bin/login is missing.

I will try to replace it with another copy from another of the same 
version on another box and see what happens.  I'll try that tomorrow when 
I get back in the office.

Thanks for your help!
