Who or what is https://github.com/5298705/woof-CE/ this fork ?

New fork, committed a changed line in rc.sysinit as
https://github.com/5298705/woof-CE/commit/137bd2d04410771e24800965761ed2d501bd47f9

-echo -e "${DISTRO_NAME} Linux\n`uname -s` `uname -r` [`uname -m` arch]\n\n" > /etc/issue

+echo -e "${DISTRO_NAME} Linux\n\\s \\\r [\m arch]\n\l\n" > /etc/issue

The new line gives me

[puppypc]# echo -e "${DISTRO_NAME} Linux\n\\s \\\r [\m arch]\n\l\n"
Puppy Linux
\s \r [\m arch]
\l



Is it a bash-4 feature ? rc.sysinit runs in ash - or not  ?

As I seem to have caused some puzzlement ...

My main motivation for pushing that first commit of mine to 5298705/woof-CE was simply to acqaint myself a little bit with git. I am also not sure that only forking and, subsequently, fetching and merging assorted commits to puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE, as well as commits to other forks, into my local repository would get my fork on the network graph, from which it will be easier to follow various pulls graphically.

Whether there will be any really, really useful (for woof-CE development) commits pushed to 5298705/woof-CE, or not, is yet to be seen.

The commit itself is simply to add tty number information to ttys, while also translating commands read from /etc/issue to sequencies understood by, among other getties, busybox getty and mingetty.

For now I guess you are simargl from the murga forum .

Would be really nice, if you'd introduce yourself without others having the need to lookup for somebody's user or settings pages.

And about the code, it does not work for me as stated.

My current /etc/profile has this line for example :

PS1="[\A \$? \$0 \$$ \# \W ] \n[\h]# "

which works in stock Puppy bash-3.00.16 for me, and  probably only if .bashrc sources /etc/profile .
