Hi Robbie,

thanks for the tip - i put /bin/bash instead of getty in my inittab and came directly (w/o login) to the prompt. All commands ok, but: ps shows just '?' in the TTY-column. Calling getty 9600 /dev/tty1 results - as before - in a hang in my current shell.

In other words: has anybody got an idea how to convince debian that the shell I am in is /dev/tty1?

Hi everybody,
again me, running SuSE 9.3 on a thinkpad T30, 1 GB RAM, 60 GB HDD, Pentium IV Mobile, 2 GHz. Debian now boots on a user-domain - but: neither getty -L nor mingetty show me any login prompt. I spent hours to dig through the rc-scripts but I wasn't able to find the problem.
 How can I solve this - what info may I provide?
Sorry, I am not familiar with debian, but is it not the case
that login processes are started by init? If so maybe looking
at /etc/initab would be instructive. How do the debian and
SuSE inittab files differ?

One other thing you could try if you are desperate is pass
a kernel command line argument

which should dump you into a shell soon after the kernel comes
up (maybe after initrd / linuxrc has finished).

If you have based your domain config file on /etc/xen/xmexample1
you can put additional command kernel command line parameters
in the 'extra' variable near the end of the file.

Hope that helps.
