Then what would be the cause when you have that file (w/ proper
permissions) and all you get is this:
[root@kramer cfandre]# lastb
btmp begins Mon Feb 8 08:41:06 1999
[root@kramer cfandre]# ls -l /var/log/btmp
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Feb 8 08:40 /var/log/btmp
Anyone have any ideas? Does this work for anyone?
