2008-12-08 12:04:36     "getty respawning too fast"

I have configured my uClinux system for login.  I am using the BF537 UART for my console and I have two issues:


1.) When I log out, a screen of previously printed text is printed to the console before the login prompt.


2.) Sometimes the message "getty respawning too fast" is printed and it takes a while before I finally get the login prompt.  I've tried tintlogin, busybox, and the stand-alone getty.  The line for getty in my /etc/inittab is:


ttyBF0::respawn:/bin/getty -L ttyBF0 57600 vt100
