Question Build/Open TTYs _afterwards_ - yes, from X!

Hi community.

I am using a Live-USB with U10.04 with Persistence enabled on it;

One of the limitations of such a system is that a lot of 'deep' configs get re-set in a reboot; in my case, /etc/init/tty[1-6].conf are back to log 6 ubuntu users on @ubuntu hosts on TTY 1 to 6 (using upstart here, no inittab to be found).

How can I script the startup of these consoles from AFTER I log my non-standard user (read: not the passwordless ubuntu live user) ?

tried both:
/sbin/getty 38800 tty[consolenumber]   -or also:
/bin/login -f [username] </dev/tty[consolenumber] > /dev/tty[consolenumber] 2>&1
to no real avail - including wrongly registering keyboard input.

As of now, I just moved away all the /etc/init/tty*.conf files; bothers me since I have no extra consoles anymore.



liveusb, tty, ubuntu.
