I don't follow.

Which is very strange, as we switched to sysv-rc and don't use
/etc/hurd/rc no more.  Could you please double check that
(e.g. update-alternatives --display runsystem should say

Check that the hurd console is running.  Also, check that you have an

in your /etc/inittab to get a getty on the mach console (of course
inittab is only used if you use sysvinit).
