/etc/motd gets overwritten every reboot :(

Any ideas how can I keep my custom /etc/motd on WD My Book Live?

Default one is back after any reboot.

Stupid & un-needed “feature”.

This “stupid and unneeded feature” is the default behavior for Debian-based systems.

I recommend not changing any system files on the My Book Live at all.  But if I wanted to, I would read the man page for motd.tail before changing anything at all.

Even then, I still wouldn’t do it on a network appliance.

OK. My apologies, if it is by default that way in debian (didn’t know).

On MyBook World Edition is put nice sexy ascii babe in motd :stuck_out_tongue:
