Description Derek Tattersall 1999-03-18 16:47:45 UTC
Using mgetty -r and minicom, mgetty does not print
/etc/issue to the minicom screen.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-23 19:27:59 UTC
Do you get the issue file after you press enter a number of times?
Are you sure the connection is established?  The man page / info page
states that the issue file will not be printed until mgetty is sure
that the connection is established when '-r' is used, so I suspect
that this is the intended behaviour.  Please read the info page, and
if your experience is different than described, reopen the bug with
more information.
