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?

Here is another idea, could be nonsense. Or insecure.

what about trying some charater device other than /dev/tty1 ?


assuming one of them works, you might want to adjust
/etc/securetty .

Hope that helps
