Hi All,

I m trying to run Linux 2.6 ( From Grant) on ML-403. I used the
busybox-1.7.2. During booting, I found the following logs and it keeps
trying to respawn the getty.It keeps looping and I never see the login
prompt.  Am I missing something.

Starting system...
mounting /proc: done.
Mounting '/' read-write: done.
brining up loopback interface: done.
Mounting /tmp: done.
Starting syslogd: done.
Starting klogd: done.
Starting inetd: done.
System started.
starting pid 163, tty '': '/sbin/getty'
[    7.218444] XSysAce: Queue is plugged
process '/sbin/getty 38400 tts/0' (pid 163) exited. Scheduling it for
starting pid 164, tty '': '/sbin/getty'
process '/sbin/getty 38400 tts/0' (pid 164) exited. Scheduling it for
starting pid 165, tty '': '/sbin/getty'

Any suggestion or pointers would be very helpful.

Best Regards,
