howto load getty AFTER rc.local

Asked by Bryan Moore on 2007-07-16

You can change the /etc/event.d/tty* jobs from

start on runlevel 2
start on runlevel 3
[start on runlevel 4]
[start on runlevel 5]

to
start on stopped rc2
start on stopped rc3
[start on stopped rc4]
[start on stopped rc5]

I have the same rc.local hang issue. That is, the prompt does not come up after rc.local has executed.
I have tried to make it work through the above solution - changing the /etc/event.d/tty*. However, i still keep getting the rc.local and then nothing after that. Ctrl+C, Enter nothing brings the prompt back. F2, 3,4,5 etc. do not help either.

I am working with colinux on windows xp and using Ubuntu 7.04.
