Hello, I have a router PC which does not have a video card (it takes a slot and an IRQ and other resources...). I use -h in /boot.options to start it from a serial console. So far so good, but init does not start a single getty. Actually, init does not even bother to read /etc/ttys or so it seems. I've disabled all ttyv*s, enabled only /dev/ttyd0, or only /dev/console - no luck.
No error messages about ttys are reported. Starting getty by hand (ssh works, all services seem to start normally) works on /dev/ttyd0 and on /dev/console. The problem is, init does not want to start them. I have observed this behaviour long time ago, and now it happens again. BTW, the system is running 5.1-RELEASE-p10. My workaround is to start ttys through daemontools/svscan.
