There's something inconsistent or perhaps its consistent and I'm just
seen different manifestations based on a variable that I'm unaware of.

You have active logins to all those tty's. A "ps -ef|grep tty" on my
system only reveals tty's with active logins.

Please rephrase, Patrick.

This is the same list I'd expect if everything was working OK.
You can see that i have logged in on tty and there is bash running there
The getty running on the other VTs means there should be a login prompt.
There isn't.
Something is worn with connections, frame buffer, whatever. I don't
know enough about these drivers to be sure what.

I only see vt's which have people logged into them:


ps -ef | grep tty
htopd 1059 1 0 Jan16 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/sh -c /usr/bin/htop d

paka 14834 14833 0 12:50 pts/25 00:00:00 grep --color=auto tty



I guess I understand now, tty1 has no-one logged in but has "--noclear"
parameter which I *only* have on tty1. That parameter must be making tty2
and 3-6 appear on your ps output and not on mine.

I have an active login on tty6 and tty8, which should actually be tty7 but
for some lengthy period X chooses tty8 over 7 *most* of the time.

sub-note: startx for me usually chooses the tty where it was issued.
But that is another topic....
