Re: blank screen after executing console command...
Actually I searched under google for "hurd console" and found
http://kerneltrap.org/node/420... There it says:
The above six ttys are only suggestions. You might want to give or
take a few, depending on your needs.
You need the terminal description. This is not yet in the ncurses
package, because I am not finished yet. But you can download it from
Please add it with
# tic -x hurd.ti
Then you should add the terminals to ttys, so you get a login session
on them at boot time. Edit the file /etc/ttys, and add the following
lines (or similar if you made more/less ttys):
tty1 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
tty2 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
tty3 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
tty4 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
tty5 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
tty6 "/libexec/getty 38400" hurd on secure
This is all. If you now reboot, you will get six virtual consoles with
a login prompt on each.
I didn't have to add the lines over /etc/ttys since they were there
already. The tic command didn't show out any output, just executed
pretty quickly... But I didn't get the expected behavior, meaning
when rebooting I never get the login prompt, neither the 6 virtual
consoles, so I didn't followed the next instruction for calling the
console since there's still something broken before that stage...
Any ideas what else I need to do?
