Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: Tumbleweed virtual terminals (tty1-6)

Somewhere around the beginning of the year the virtual text terminals
sometimes are initialized too late, so that xdm starts before these
become available. If that happens you can't switch from vt7 (xdm/X11)
back to any of the virtual terminal screens and have to restart xdm
before these become available. Is there any setting I may have missed
that influences this or is systemd simply missing a dependency here?

I have watched it doing it again after the update today: in fact all six
virtual terminals had their getty processes started and I could switch
between them while the boot was still in progress. As soon as kdm
kicked in, I could no longer switch to any of the text terminals until I
had restarted the xdm service (which I need to do blind since as soon as
I switch to textmode from kdm my monitor goes into power-off).

Please comment on:

I see the same problem in a vbox and filed bug-report, but appears it is
not carrying much weight
