    Turn off "extra" getty's?


    Hiya,

    Using Debian.. How can i turn of the "extra" CTRL-ALT-F(x) login prompts *hopefully* reducing the number of getty processes running? would only like 2-3 running , currently i have 6.

    Cant seem to get a straight answer to this one anywhere

    Cheers!

    Jason

    I think you do it in /etc/securetty or something similar to that. Can't check it out right now but I think its correct.
