Rapid respawns

If you are every using rPath Linux in Xen, and you get this errors in your console:

INIT: Id "2" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "3" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "4" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "5" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "6" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

you will find that that the terms are not created yet in /dev i.e.

#ls /dev
tty tty1

so you would have to create em as such:
[removed the prompt, so its easy to copy&paste!]

cd /dev
mknod tty2 c 4 2
mknod tty3 c 4 3
mknod tty4 c 4 4
mknod tty5 c 4 5
mknod tty6 c 4 6

That should get rid of the pesky messages.

yk.
