Unix question. /dev/xvc0: No such file or directory

I have an Amazon cloud RedHat installation. My secure log (/var/log/secure) keeps filling up with: “agetty[12904]: /dev/xvc0: No such file or directory” and my /varlog/message log with: “init: Id “co” respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

My /var/inittab has the following lines:
# Run gettys in standard runlevels
co:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty xvc0 9600 vt100-nav
#1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
#2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
#3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
#4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
#5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
#6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6

  • do I want to comment out the line co:2345 … ? Or will that make the machine unreachable, since all the other gettys have been commented out as well?

Google recommends that you comment out the agetty line, but uncomment all the mingetty lines. Seems to be an issue with the Xen kernel and virtualization.
