Take a look to the /bin/login command in muLinux: this is a script
wrapper. It starts:

        1) ash, if EXT is *not* mounted (fake 'login')
        2) /usr/local/bin/login, if EXT si mounted (the true 'login')
        3) /usr/bin/ile, if USR is mounted (the command history),

Command history in muLinux is full demanded to an external program,
"ile", used in this way:

                # /usr/bin/ile -/etc/ilerc /bin/-ash -si
                (this is the *fake* case).

If you wish command history without USR, put "ile" in /bin, and change
/bin/login accordly.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
