I edited my SCO Unix gettydefs and things broke

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

You can check gettydefs using /etc/getty -c /etc/gettydefs; this command will print out everything you could possibly want to know, and then some. Common mistakes include not leaving a blank line between entries or having a cycle of settings but forgetting to close the loop (e.g. if 1 fails, use 2; if 2 fails, use 3; if 3 fails, you forgot to tell it to go back to 1).

Got something to add? Send me email.

What do such machines really do? They increase the number of things we can do without thinking. Things we do without thinking — there's the real danger. (Frank Herbert)
