>(1) I have been unable to get logins working on /dev/ttya.

i run a lot of terminals (two as consoles) under the hp300 port.

i've noticed several problems, the most important of which are:

'ap' doesn't work. you must set an explicit parity in your gettytab entry.
what i see when i don't is similar to what you're seeing, so you might
have the same problem.

'init' leaves the console set wrong when you drop into single user,
if getty has been running on it.
