Description of problem:
the mingetty launched on tty1 by /etc/inittab should be started with the
--noclear option. One will not be able to see FAILED init-scripts if the
console is cleared.
Steps to Reproduce:
Just boot your newly installed System.
Actual Results: The console is cleared, the results of the initscripts can
no longer be seen.
Expected Results: One should be able to see the results of the initscripts.
Just change one line in /etc/inittab to read:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --noclear tty1
You're free to change inittab yourself;
it's %config(noreplace), so it won't be changed on updates.
