I have the following problem:
When I log in from the console (/dev/tty1) everything works fine. If I
switch to a virtual terminal (dev/tty2-ttyn) then getty accepts the
username and correctly starts teh login programme for the password.
However the keystrokes for the password are not suppressed when the
user enters the password and the system hangs once enter is pushed. It
hangs for about a minute before returing login incorrect and shows the
I think the problem is with the login programme and not getty as it
fails at the password prompt. Any ideas/help would be appreciated.
thanking you in advance
