Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 862798
ttys are not started except for tty1
Last modified: 2012-10-04 06:20:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed F18 Beta TC1 (any architecture) from PXE. The installed system boots and works, but only tty1 (with gdm) is functional. If I switch to any other tty, only blinking underscore is there. No login prompt, hitting keys does nothing. I tried to reboot several times, no help. I have seen this on two different machines.
When I install from Live, other ttys work.
I have some weird feeling that systemd is now in charge of spawning ttys, so reporting against it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F18 Beta TC1 over PXE

This could potentially be a blocker, or NTH.
Do you have an login prompt if you boot into the multiuser-target?
Under what blocker criteria do you think this falls under?
enforcing=0 on the boot line fixes this. Reassigning.
Btw, it can be also reproduced with netinst installations.
Booting into runlevel 3 produces working tty1, but no other tty again.
From what I understand, this is due more to internal selinux code inside systemd than due to the policy itself. Dan?
The problem happens with systemd-193-13fc18. The problem is solved with systemd-194-1.fc18. (no selinux-policy change needed).
Because systemd-194-1.fc18 is now in stable updates, closing.
