Description Jon Masters 2007-10-25 07:32:43 UTC
Description of problem:

/etc/inittab should have a commented out entry example of defining a serial
console, it's something other distributions provide and is a good idea.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-25 14:56:51 UTC
Well, if you boot with a serial console, we automatically add an entry. (And one
in inittab doesn't help with securetty.)

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-25 14:59:50 UTC
One issue is that you'll never get this change on any machine that's already
been installed, as inittab is generally modified after installation.

Comment 3 Jon Masters 2008-04-16 00:42:02 UTC
Right, but we probably want the default to give a nice example :)

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-16 00:54:46 UTC
Well, there's an example of how to do an upstart one in the upstart multiplexer
job now.
