boot w/o keyboard
Okay, here's one for you. When I boot one of my Ultra-5s without
a keyboard plugged in, the OpenPROM switches to a serial console.
Connecting a keyboard after this point has no effect; no input
will be accepted from it or sent to the screen. This isn't good
for me. I have them on a rack connected to a beowulf cluster, and
I want to simply connect a keyboard and monitor when needed.
What's worse is that the associated console devices don't seem to
work. getty apparently dies immediately- in the daemon.log I get
init: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
for all the virtual consoles. Is there a way to tell OpenPROM to
just carry on normally if it can't find the keyboard?
