"/etc/issue.net" escape sequences not being translated

Sat May 11, 2019 7:46 pm

I changed my "/etc/issue.net" file to contain:

Code: Select all

Authorized Use Only

\l
\U

and instead of seeing something like:

Code: Select all

Authorized Use Only

tty1
2 users

I wind up seeing the contents of "/etc/issue.net" without any of the escape sequences having been translated, i.e., what's shown on the first code block above.

Any ideas what would cause this?

TIA...
