5 copies of agetty running
when I run top I see that I have 5 copies of agetty running on my desktop system
Is there a configuration file somewhere that controls this? or does the system look at my hardware and assume this?
can someone point me to a document that tells about what the system starts and why?
A good start would be to post "What system you are running? "
I have done some research and I find they are virtual tty's tty2 -tty6
Further research in Wikipedia tells me what a virtual tty is. I experimented with ctrl alt f1 and sure enough I get a text console.
so now I understand what this is.
Unless I'm wrong the result is similar to init 1 except in that case the existing x system goes away - whereas in this case there are 2 systems or more running in parallel.
