https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261828 --- Comment #3 from Nick Hibma <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to Kristof Provost from comment #1) It's /etc/rc that is producing this output. FreeBSD defaults to no news is good news. Unlike Linux that is much more chatty. There is no use for the printing of the name. If I set the name for the interface I know what the name of that interface is going to be. I look through dmesg to check whether my custom router with 12+ interfaces started up correctly. Having this sort of gibberish clobbering the output is confusing. I have no problem committing this myself into the FreeBSD tree by the way. Just wanted to hear your opinion. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
