Fedora 13 has quite a few changes related to upstart, and one of the biggest ones is how terminals are configured. Most distributions tuck the tty configuration away in /etc/inittab, /etc/event.d/ or /etc/init/. If you want to adjust the number of tty’s in Fedora 13, you’ll need to look in /etc/sysconfig/init: new RH6.0 bootup # verbose => old-style bootup # anything else => new style bootup without ANSI colors or positioning BOOTUP=color # column to start "[ OK ]" label in RES_COL=60 # terminal sequence to move to that column.
