comment How do I start a second shell when in single user mode?
Just thought I'd report that I just spent over a week with a system in single user mode repairing a RAID array and openvt proved to be very useful. Thanks for bringing a new command to my notice.

This actually seems much easier that getty. I never realised it was already installed.

Tried it. It works, but since the login session isn't spawned from init, it doesn't get re-spawned if it dies.

The 'overkill' reference was more with regard to the windowing/split-screen capabilities of programs like tmux. After experimenting, I suspect that screen is probably more stable that getty in the single user environment.

This looks like what I'm looking for. I'll give it a try next time.

As Cristian says, I'd already considered screen and felt other multiplexers were even more overkill. All I need is a simple second console.

The point is that I don't want to suspend or interfere with the process running on the initial console. For example, when running ddrescue I don't want to keep interrupting and resuming it even though it's set up to do this..
