Hi,

I am getting the following msg every time when i was logged in server. Can you provide me the solution to disable this.

Open Source Software has been installed on this system. See /opt/OpenSource/etc/copyright
You have mail.

This is being called from your /etc/profile
Please go through the /etc/profile and you should see somewhere in the end it would be calling this strings

Re: Open Source Software has been installed on this system

The problem is in /etc/profile. It has been modified without your knowledge. Start finding the problem by looking for the message:

grep Open /etc/profile

There should be a line with that string in /etc/profile. Removing that line will turn off the message. If you do not see anything in /etc/profile, then it is caused by some process that was added to /etc/profile. If you have not modified /etc/profile since installation, try comparing for the differences:

diff /etc/profile /use/newconfig/etc/profile

I would also look in /opt/OpenSource for documentation as to what was added (/opt/OpenSource is not part of HP-UX).

Re: Open Source Software has been installed on this system

dude, are you not reading these posts. it has _nothing_ to do with mail. the 'you have mail' message is normal and is in NO WAY related to the 'open source' message.
