I am quite new in Linux and have a problem with getty.
I am 'only' trying to connect a dumb terminal with a linux box.
I have test the /etc/gettydefs file and it is correct (well it says the
same that my manual). I have configured the file /etc/rc.d/rc.serial as
the manual says.
if i execute from the console:
/sbin/getty ttyS1 DT9600 vt100
my terminal works fine, so it is not a cabling problem, but when i
logout i cannot log again until i go to the console and execute the
Then i said, OK i need to respwn it in the /etc/inittab file and i put a
new line on it as:
S1:456:respawn:/sbin/getty ttyS1 DT9600 vt100
and execute :
My terminal does not work.
Then i reboot the machine, it does not work
If i execute again the line from the console it works again perfectly
until i logout
I am lose
Thanks in advanced
