Setting up the agetty service in OpenRC =================================xxxxxx

The agetty service is an OpenRC specific way to monitor and respawn a getty, using agetty, on Linux. To use this method, make sure you aren't spawning a getty manager for this port some other way (such as through sysvinit/inittab), then run the following commands as root.

Note that [port] refers to the port you are spawning the getty on, for example, tty1 or ttyS0. The full path to it, for example, /dev/tty1 should not be used.

# cd /etc/init.d
# ln -s agetty agetty.[port]
# cd /etc/conf.d
# cp agetty agetty.[port]
#rc-update add agetty.[port] [runlevel]
You can’t perform that action at this time.
