Add hvsi0 and hvc0 to securetty
I recently installed Fedora 16/Rawhide on my power5 system, After getting systemd to spawn a getty on the console (hvsi0) [separate issue], I was unable to log in as root on said getty.
Adding entries "hvsi0" to the securetty fixes this. Also I believe that "hvc0" is needed for other powerpc systems and virtual guests.
setup-2.8.36-2.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 16 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing setup-2.8.36-2.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
The securetty changes look good for powerpc. I had to compile it up locally as the powerpc builders are a little behind ;P
setup-2.8.36-2.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
