From: Gregory Nowak <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Devuan Bug Tracking System <email@example.com> Subject: util-linux: prevent agetty from exiting if a serial port doesn't exist Date: Wed, 24 May 2017 20:16:16 -0700 Package: util-linux Version: 2.26.2-6+devuan1 Severity: wishlist Dear Maintainer, Please consider adding the ability for agetty/getty to keep running if attached to a serial port that doesn't exist, perhaps by passing a flag to it at invokation. This request is related to: <https://git.devuan.org/sdk/arm-sdk/issues/4> If agetty/getty was passed for example a --no-terminate flag, and attached to a valid serial port, it should behave like it does now. If getty/agetty was passed the --no-terminate flag for example, and attached to a serial port which doesn't exist, it would keep running instead of terminating. The agetty/getty instance doesn't need to check if that serial port becomes active later, The user would respawn agetty/getty via init if he/she wanted to use it on a serial port which wasn't active previously, but which later became active. This functionality would make it possible to have agetty listening on /dev/ttyS0 on the raspberry pi3, regardless of if enable_uart=1 was set or not set in /boot/config.txt, and therefore regardless of if /dev/ttyS0 exists or not. This in turn would greatly help in resolving issue four for arm-sdk mentioned above.
