    when I remotely login a debian linux server, and type "who". it displays that I have two login entries. I rebooted all my local machines, but it still shows two entries.


    How can I terminate the old one entry?

    Thanks,
    YJ

    Don't try! Don't even think about it!

    One means you have logged in - tty
    The other means you have opened a Terminal from the x-window - pts/0

    If you open e.g. 3 Terminals and then issue the command: who
    You will see: tty and pts/0, pts/1, pts/2...

    When you close all Terminals the pts/X will disappear
