[opensuse] Failed login prompts on VTs
The last kernel update seems to have killed of the ability to login at
the virtual terminals (that is, all the switches to terminals using
Ctl-Alt-Fn no longer produce login prompts). The graphical login still
works.

Systemd-logind is running but hasn't spawned any login prompts for the
tty[1-6]

This is
Linux Mainbox 4.4.0-2.g368c53d-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 12
13:39:53 UTC 2016 (368c53d) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

on a 13.1 machine

Systemd is Version: 208-35.1

The contents of /etc/syste/d/logind.conf are all default (that is
everything is commented out).
This is the one thing that makes me wonder. Normally commented out
values in config files mean "use the compiled in default".
(As documented in
http://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/logind.conf.html.) Has
that changed?

I'm aware of 'loginctl' but its use seems obscure. The man page is of
no help. I suspect a "loginctl attach seat device" would be useful but
I'm far from certain how to specify a new 'seat'. I'm not even sure
this is relevant since all I read about it seems to concern a second
graphical 'seat'.

Yes I have a /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@tty1.service
Should there be more?
I thought all the getty stuff for the virtual terminals was
automatically generated by some process that generates the units,
somewhere, somehow.

So where have they gone?
I find not clues that mean anything to me in the logs.

Any suggestions are welcome.
