    Yes, you are on the right track. It is trying to open virtual consoles on a non-existent serial port. Here is what that part of my /etc/inittab looks like:

      Yes, you are on the right track. It is trying to open virtual
      consoles on a non-existent serial port. Here is what that part of my
      /etc/inittab looks like:

      1:2345:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
      2:23:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
      3:23:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
      4:23:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
      5:23:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
      6:23:off:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6

      Notice "respawn" was replaced with "off".

      Is this from a recent installation of Freelink? If so please let them
      know about this.

          Buffalo has announced a new addition to the
          LinkStation line: HS-D300GL and HS-D400GL. These
          appear to be typical LinkStations with software
          support for the DLNA standard used by its new
          LinkTheater Mini. However, it is possible that there
          are hardware differences (beefier processor and
          memory, for example), to run the new server software.
          If anyone has any hardware details, please share them!
