Projects / fgetty


fgetty is derived from mingetty but hacked until it would link against diet libc to produce the smallest memory footprint possible for a simple yet complete getty.

        Release Notes: login2 would not let you log in when you didn't have /etc/motd; this is now fixed.

        •  01 Jun 2001 05:51

          Release Notes: fgetty now comes with a checkpassword with /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow support. Also, the checkpassword API (and login2) is augmented so that your TTY now actually belongs to you after you log in.

            Release Notes: A checkpassword based login implementation has been added to allow the replacement of the password encryption routine on the fly without touching libc or login.

            USE IT
            It is just fine, very usable, small - what does anybody want more?
            Also get the checkpasswd (a link on the home) and use the supplied login replacing your login -- and free about 900k (login stays in RAM until you logout - thanks to SUN bloatware PAM).
