I noticed something the other day that I thought was a bit weird. I had a
high amount of HD activity, so I wanted to see who was on my machine. I tried
using the "who" command and received no information (not even for myself).
I have found that various methods of signing in cause different behavior,
presumably due to being assigned different terminal names. For instance: If I
open an Xterm, or telnet into the machine, I will not see any information
(Although a who -q does), however, if I SSH or sign in on the console, I get
the results I was expecting.
Am I missing something or being a bit thick? (please see below for examples)
[through a xterm]
[through a telnet]
feathers$ telnet localhost
Connected to localhost.
