I've had the exact same issue with ubuntu hardy heron, using standard apt-get installs. Unbelievable that a distribution like this can be broken with this stupid mistake. It took me some time digging in the init-scripts to find the problem was in het following file:
Check your file: /etc/event.d/tty1, it should be like this:
# tty1 - getty
# This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.

start on stopped rc2
start on stopped rc3
start on stopped rc4
start on stopped rc5

stop on runlevel 0
stop on runlevel 1
stop on runlevel 6

exec /sbin/getty 38400 tty1

For some reason this file was changed into something with xvc0 and added some lines. I restored this file from a working system, and everything's ok now. Not sure what package caused the problem, though.

I've now tried adding hvc0 to /etc/securetty but nothing changed.
I've now noticed that it says "Loading local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)          [OK]"
That has to mean it doesn't hang at rc.local but the one after rc.local or something like that.. ?
And the one behind S99rc.local is S99rmnologin:


I've attached it to this mail. Maybe you could send me yours and I'll check the if there's any difference.

murmel@xen:~$ md5sum /etc/init.d/rmnologin
e48b235c7c2ea0550f6a6ed2f3f769b3  /etc/init.d/rmnologin

Check and see if you got the same md5sum.-

My ubuntu 8.04 /etc/event.d/tty1 has

exec /sbin/getty 38400 tty1

as it's last line.

my /etc/securrety file has:

those at the end for the xen consoles

The menu.lst is unmodified, seems fine to me...

It works for me.
Hope that helps,
