Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 817186
systemd incorrectly handles virtual text terminals
Last modified: 2012-08-08 19:30:21 EDT
Description of problem: I have set my X.org to start at vt7, however after playing with init 3, init 5 for a while now I have the three first virtual text consoles dead.
There's nothing running on them, I cannot activate them:
# ps ax | grep tt
12210 tty7 Ss+ 0:16 /usr/bin/X -background none :0 vt07 -nolisten tcp
12287 tty4 Ss+ 0:00 -bash
12318 tty5 Ss+ 0:00 /sbin/agetty tty5 38400
12319 tty6 Ss+ 0:00 /sbin/agetty tty6 38400
I can switch to vt1/vt2/vt3 but there's nothing there except a blinking cursor. Pressing any keys doesn't cause any reaction.
I have the following configuration:
* LXDM configured to start X.org at vt7
* NVIDIA binary drivers
* Vesa frame buffer activated via vga=0x346 on a kernel command line
We do not support display managers whose primary VT is not VT1. That is by design.
