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]
