Description Holger Schurig 2000-09-26 12:37:00 UTC
In /etc/inittab are the definitions to call mingetty. Unfortately mingetty
on console tty1 is called in a way so that it clears the screen. I had
several occassions where this prevented me from seing an error message.

I therefore suggest that you change

  1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingett tty1

to

  1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --noclear tty1
