Bootup reports open /dev/ttyv0: No such file or directory



  • APU
    2.2-BETA (amd64)
    built on Wed Nov 26 15:27:11 CST 2014
    FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE

    System log has:

    Nov 27 09:35:56 	getty[78261]: open /dev/ttyv0: No such file or directory
    Nov 27 09:35:56 	getty[78261]: open /dev/ttyv0: No such file or directory
    
    

    My serial console says it is ttyu0

    Will anybody care that there is no ttyv0?
    Should it be added to the build, or removed from getty or?



  • I saw a similar thing in the logs for a different file but in a slightly earlier version of the pfsense beta.

    Dont know if they are connected, but in my case even though it shows in the log no file or directory, the file did exist and had been used previously by the firewall to log on as it was the ppp login details for pppoe, so whether there is some underlying bug maybe at the OS level which is causing a few problems with file/folder access I dont know. Might be a case of one to watch out for.

    fwiw.
