#638: init:: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port ...
 Reporter:  harlan     |       Type:  System Defect
   Status:  new        |   Priority:  major
Milestone:             |  Component:  System Configuration
  Version:  9.1-BETA1  |   Keywords:
 When I upgraded from 9.0 to the 9.1 beta I had the above problem.  I just
 upgraded from the latest beta to RC1.

 While the box was applying package updates there was a kernel panic after
 a fair number of packages were installed.

 I rebooted the box and what I get is the system mounts the root filesystem
 and I immediately get the 'getty' messages described above.  The system
 does not let me log in.

 If I boot in to single-user mode I can mount the filesystems just fine,
 but when I exit single user mode I'm left at an Amnesiac login prompt -
 the system does not try and go multi-user.
