Packager: Red Hat Software <>
Summary: The getty and uugetty programs.
The getty_ps package contains the getty and uugetty programs, basic
programs for accomplishing the login process on a Red Hat Linux system.
Getty and uugetty are used to accept logins on the console or a terminal.
Getty is invoked by the init process to open tty lines and set their modes,
to print the login prompt and get the user's name, and to initiate a login
process for the user.  Uugetty works just like getty, except that uugetty
creates and uses lock files to prevent two or more processes from
conflicting in their use of a tty line.  Getty and uugetty can also handle
answer a modem for dialup connections, but mgetty is recommended for that
