For the agetty I honestly am not sure... I looked at my gnome system monitor, and even opened gftp and connected to a ftp site. However, I did not D/L anything. I didn't see any instances of agetty running....
EDIT: after further investigation...
do a $ps -A
and you should see the instances of agetty running and the tty terminal(s) they are connected to.
@slackboss:~$ ps -A
PID TTY TIME CMD
1525 tty6 00:00:00 agetty
So you are OK. cause those are all the terminals at cntl-alt-F2, cntl-alt-F3, cntl-alt-F4, cntl-alt-F5, and cntl-alt-F6 waiting for you with a login: prompt. Mine only shows 1 instance because the only tty I can log into is at cntrl-alt-F6... It shouldn't be that way on mine! It has a frame buffer issue if I recall right, an NVIDIA thing....
For your memory, Slack's kernel doesn't have high mem enabled in the kernel. It would require a recompile of the kernel... and adding support under the Processor Type and Features -->
