Nvi mails me <lots>
I get many e-mail messages in my mailbox like the following:
On Thu Oct 5 12:19:44 2000, the user root was editing a
file named /proc/aironet/eth0/Config on the machine sirach,
when it was saved for recovery. You can recover most, if not
all, of the changes to this file using the -r option to ex:
ex -r /proc/aironet/eth0/Config
This is a file that is edited by a (homemade) script to activate
my wireless ethernet card. This is the script:
ex -s /proc/aironet/eth0/Config >/dev/null <<EOF
echo paswoord > /proc/aironet/eth0/SSID
(which has to be run as root. 'chmod a+s'-ing the executable
owned by root doesn't seem to work).
Why? How do I prevent this?
