Right. I've since copped on that using mingetty is a Bad Thing. I'm using
mgetty for managing logins on the serial port. /etc/inittab is now saying:
7:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -s 19200 -r ttyS1
The log for mgetty when I try and login is:
05/04 17:11:19 yS1 mgetty: experimental test release 1.1.19-Nov24
05/04 17:11:19 yS1 check for lockfiles
05/04 17:11:19 yS1 locking the line
05/04 17:11:19 yS1 lowering DTR to reset Modem
05/04 17:11:20 yS1 waiting...
05/04 17:11:40 yS1 WARNING: starting login while DCD is low!
05/04 17:11:40 ##### data dev=ttyS1, pid=28528, caller='none', conn='DIRECT', na
me='', cmd='/bin/login', user='valen'
When I try and login, all is OK, until I try to enter the password -
nothing happens after I hit enter after the username is put in. Any ideas ?
