A dumb terminal connected via a serial port to my Linux box
hangs after I type a username at the login prompt.
The two machines seem to be configured correctly. I made the
necessary changes to /etc/inittab, and when I rebooted, the
login prompt showed up on the dumb terminal. As a test, I pressed
Enter several times, and the login prompt recycled without a problem.
When I typed in a username at the login prompt, though, the machine
froze and never prompted me for a password.
Any help would be much appreciated!
