I'm using having a problem with getty not respawning after several logins.
Running Slackware install, kernel 0.99.15 from sunsite.unc.edu...
I have two 486's (50mhz, 33mhz) set up with one as a transmit computer, and
and one as the receive. They are connected using two ISDN cards acting as
Hayes modems. I have the receive side set up to auto-answer ( ats0=1 )
with a getty running on ttyS2.
I then use kermit to dial the receive side, login, logout ( logout hangs up
because of stty settings). I need to be able to do this many times
The receive side almost _answers_ reliably.
Usually, the getty is there does its thing. However, every 9 or 10 tries
(usually 9 or 10, but not a fixed number) the getty is not there. I get
CONNECT from the modem, but have to wait about 5 min ( I've timed it )
and then I finally get the issue banner, etc, and everything proceeds normally.
The receive modem is definitely answering, but the getty is just not there
waiting. I have done ps's and top's, etc to watch, and sure enough, one
second the getty is not there, and the next it's loging me in.
If anyone has any idea whatsoever as to what's going on, please E-mail me
