fgetty is derived from mingetty but hacked until it would link against diet libc to produce the smallest memory footprint possible for a simple yet complete getty.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: Turning echo off before executing login, adding users to group "console" if it's there, and accepting passwords longer than 8 characters for MD5 passwords.
Release Notes: This release includes gplv2 to make Debian people happy.
Release Notes: login2 would not let you log in when you didn't have /etc/motd; this is now fixed.
Release Notes: fgetty now comes with a checkpassword with /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow support. Also, the checkpassword API (and login2) is augmented so that your TTY now actually belongs to you after you log in.
Release Notes: A checkpassword based login implementation has been added to allow the replacement of the password encryption routine on the fly without touching libc or login.
