I can confirm that this also fixes bug #760916. Since apparently Conditions can't be used on targets, I came up with a slightly different idea, using a service, which triggers the start of getty on tty2-6 in absence of /usr/bin/dbus-daemon. The advantage of that static-getty.service compared to enabling getty on tty2-6 is, that we can easily drop that again in jessie+X once we have kdbus. Removing the symlinks in /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/ on upgrades is tricky, since those can actually be created by the admin and in this case we don't want to remove it. Comments welcome Michael -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
