Subject: openrc: /sbin/openrc-init does not allow any login
Date: Sat, 09 May 2020 07:06:10 +0900 (JST)
Package: openrc
Version: 0.40.3-1
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Dear Maintainer,

(1) https://beta.devuan.org/os/documentation/install-guides/beowulf/img/025initchoice.png
says that a user can choose sysvinit versus openrc.
When "openrc" is chosen, PID 1 is /sbin/init and it is from the sysvinit-core package,
not the openrc-init. The choice made by the Devuan Installer Beta 2 is the one
between sysv-rc and openrc packages. If it is intended,  texts in
https://beta.devuan.org/os/documentation/install-guides/beowulf/img/025initchoice.png
have to be revised.

(2) If the above (1) is considered a bug (I think so), to which package a bug report is
filed by reportbug? It seems undocumented.

(3) One can choose /sbin/openrc-init as PID 1 by adding init=/sbin/openrc-init to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub, then running update-grub.
After rebooting, there is no login prompt on any virtual ttys!!!

"man openrc-init" says

     openrc-init doesn't manage getty's directly, so you will need to manage them another way. For example, you can use the
     agetty service script as described in agetty-guide.md in this distribution.

Hmm... but there is no "agetty" package in Devuan.
I hope there exists some more friendly document on how to enable login prompts
by openrc-init in the Devuan Beowulf...

Note: Devuan Beowulf is running on qemu-kvm, but it may not matter...

Best regards, Ryutaroh Matsumoto

My above report of bug 444 was inaccurate, sorry for that.

(4) /sbin/agetty is included in Devuan Beowulf.
(5) /usr/share/doc/openrc/agetty-guide.md in Devuan Beowulf says:

**********
The agetty service is an OpenRC specific way to monitor and respawn a getty, using agetty, on Linux. To use this method, make sure you aren't spawning a getty manager for this port some other way (such as through sysvinit/inittab), then run the following commands as root.

Note that [port] refers to the port you are spawning the getty on, for example, tty1 or ttyS0. The full path to it, for example, /dev/tty1 should not be used.

# cd /etc/init.d
# ln -s agetty agetty.[port]
# cd /etc/conf.d
# cp agetty agetty.[port]
#rc-update add agetty.[port] [runlevel]
**********

The problem in Devuan openrc package is that it excludes
/etc/init.d/agetty and /etc/conf.d/agetty provided at
https://github.com/OpenRC/openrc/blob/master/init.d/agetty.in
https://github.com/OpenRC/openrc/blob/master/conf.d/agetty

Users cannot follow instructions in /usr/share/doc/openrc/agetty-guide.md in Devuan Beowulf.

Please could you report this to Debian BTS as they maintain the openrc packages
currently used in Devuan.

Thanks
