Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88540
rc.sysinit incorrectly determines number of active vt consoles.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:35:37 EDT
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit incorrectly parses /etc/inittab to find out active virtual
The "grep" command used is:
grep '^[0-9]*.*respawn:/sbin/mingetty' /etc/inittab
which happily matches all entries containing "respawn..." substring. Even
commented out lines are matched.
Please consider changing that "grep" command to
"grep '^[0-9]\+.*respawn:/sbin/mingetty' /etc/inittab"
Created attachment 91064 [details]
This isn't quite the same as Bug 88061, but the fix for both is the same....
Fixed slightly differently in current code.
Will be in 7.25-1.
