Description Steffen Maier 2009-08-03 08:35:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Upstart events for tty1 to tty6 try to (re)spawn mingettys even though the terminals do not exist on s390x which clogs the syslog with error messages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-8.95-1.s390x

How reproducible:
Take default installation of Fedora including initscripts and see error messages in /var/log/messages.

Actual results:
Upstart tries to respawn mingettys for non-existant tty1 to tty6.

Expected results:
Upstart does not try to start mingetty on terminals that do not exist.
