For me it works fine to start getty in my vserver guests.
What I did:
- copy the tty file(s) as you
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2007-01-01 00:00 console -> tty1
crw-rw-rw- 1 root tty 5, 0 2007-01-01 00:00 tty
crw------- 1 root root 4, 7 2007-01-01 00:00 tty1
You may note I called it tty1 inside of my guest, but due to
the minor of the char device it's tty 7 for the kernel (tty 6 would
have minor 6)
- configured my guest tu use plain init style
(this is required to have an init process inside the guest that
can start and respawn gettys)
This works fine (also take care inside of the guest to not have your local
syslog, if any, to log to your only console, would at least not look good and
be anoying when using that tty)
