I had that problem once - it was because I'd changed to devfs, and my 
getty couldn't find /dev/tty cause devfs puts terminal devices under 
/dev/vc/* . So, that could well be the problem. I'd guess if that's not 
it then it's something to do with devices, and it's almost certainly 
got something to do with your getty.

it looks like it is having problems switching over from the startup scripts 
tto runlevel 3.  I tried changing it to runlevel 5 in the /etc/inittab 
file, but same problem occurs.
