No qingy is a replacement for mingetty, or for the vt portion of agetty.
Qingy does not replace true getty.
getty on a debian system is actually agetty, which supports both dumb modem
connections and VTs.
The application I want to package, qingy, is in fact a replacement for
getty and it needs to modify /etc/inittab.
Real getty supports ony serial lines (dumb modems).
Quingy and mingetty only work for VTs.
Nevertheless, you can use quingy as a drop-in replacement for debian's getty
if you are not using serial terminals.
Just wanted to chime in.
