I'm using Damn Small Linux (or "DSL") (which is based "non-purely" on Debian - I have access to apt-get) in a Virtual Machine.
I installed telnet server (telnetd + xinetd).
I'm also running another Virtual Machine, this time with installed telnet client in it (Linux distribution AntiX).
When I'm connecting with telnet from AntiX to DSL, I'm prompted about login+password, which is ok.
But then, when I log-in it's just shows a message and then freezes. By "freezes" I mean:
- I can type anything I want, but when I press ENTER the commands are not executed. Instead the cursor just moves to the next line.
- The line "dsl@dsl$ " (which prompts for entering a command) does not show.
- In the server side (DSL) the windows flash (close) when the login happens.
It seems like some process is running, but the problem is that it never stops. I have to type "Ctrl+C" to stop it and continue with the command line.
There is also a warning in DSL's site which says that if you install the wrong application via apt-get, then you can break something, "for Instance the X server"? Could this be X server?
My questions are:
- Can I find out which process is running? I'm intended here only to try and make it not start again.
- Can I make this process not start upon telnet connection?
Logging in with root also reproduces the error.
