Not working
Authored by: pheed on Jan 05, '05 12:32:28AM

It took two attempts to actually write my contact information to NVRAM. Now when I run nvram -p from Terminal, it shows up properly. However, when I boot using Command+Option+O+F, the banner does not show up. Any ideas as to why this is?

Didn't forget - Still doesn't work.

No, I didn't forget to run that command. I've run it a couple of times now. Again, running nvram -p in the Terminal shows my OEM banner, but when I boot to Open Firmware, nothing out of the ordinary is seen. I have a dual 2 GHz Power Mac G5 with OS 10.3.7.

It causes a problem
Authored by: schawimo on Jan 10, '05 06:24:56AM

After I did this, I began to have a message at my login screen, appearing always when I've typed my name and password and confirm with the return key. It sais (translated): "You cannot continue to login at this point of time, because of a problem. Please contact your system administrator."
I resetted the "oem-banner"-entry, but the message remains now. After confirming this message, the system continues to log-in with this name. And other users on this system also have the problem.
Ever seen this?
