motd


DESCRIPTION
       The contents of /etc/motd are displayed by pam_motd(8) after a success-
       ful login but just before it executes the login shell.

       The abbreviation "motd" stands for "message of the day", and this  file
       has  been  traditionally  used  for exactly that (it requires much less
       disk space than mail to all users).

       On Debian GNU/Linux, the content  of  /run/motd.dynamic  is  also  dis-
       played.  This file is generated by /etc/init.d/motd at boot.
