[nocol-users] Re: length of "Device Name"
Really old topic, but has anyone else done this? I changed MAXNMLEN to 25 from 16. Other than the netconsole, what else did you have to change? I'm perfectly content to have the netconsole simply be truncated, as we don't utilize it much, if ever. --Nathan On Fri, 22 Oct 1999, Rick Beebe wrote: > Date: Fri, 22 Oct 1999 09:07:11 -0400 > From: Rick Beebe <email@example.com> > To: Otto Fuetterer <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Cc: email@example.com > Subject: Re: length of "Device Name" > > Otto Fuetterer wrote: > > > > Hi, > > this question is regarding the webinterface to nocol > > The subject says it all, where do I make the field that holds "Device Name" > > longer? > > Currently this fieldīs maximum is 15 Characters.
