Re: fedora 14 - inittab not work

From the comments in F14 /etc/inittab:

Code:
# inittab is only used by upstart for the default runlevel.
#
# ADDING OTHER CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.
#
# System initialization is started by /etc/init/rcS.conf
#
# Individual runlevels are started by /etc/init/rc.conf
#
# Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
#
# Terminal gettys are handled by /etc/init/tty.conf and /etc/init/serial.conf,
# with configuration in /etc/sysconfig/init.
#
# For information on how to write upstart event handlers, or how
# upstart works, see init(5), init(8), and initctl(8).
#
From that the file(s) you want to look at are /etc/init/tty.conf or /etc/init/serial.conf

Re: fedora 14 - inittab not work

rc.conf is a task for changing the runlevel. In your initial post you have a line with mgetty, so you would want the files that deal with terminal gettys. The files you want to look at are mentioned in my previous post near the end "/etc/init/tty.conf or /etc/init/serial.conf"
