       systemd-getty-generator - Generator for enabling getty instances on the console




       systemd-getty-generator is a generator that automatically instantiates
       serial-getty@.service on the kernel console /dev/console if that is not directed to the
       virtual console subsystem. It will also instantiate serial-getty@.service instances for
       virtualizer consoles, if execution in a virtualized environment is detected. Finally, it
       will instantiate container-getty@.service instances for additional container pseudo TTYs
       as requested by the container manager (see Container Interface[1]). This should ensure
       that the user is shown a login prompt at the right place, regardless of which environment
       the system is started in. For example, it is sufficient to redirect the kernel console
       with a kernel command line argument such as console= to get both kernel messages and a
       getty prompt on a serial TTY. See kernel-parameters.txt[2] for more information on the
       console= kernel parameter.

       systemd-getty-generator implements systemd.generator(7).

       Further information about configuration of gettys you may find in systemd for
       Administrators, Part XVI: Gettys on Serial Consoles (and Elsewhere)[3].
