[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#824391: please add ttySAC* to securetty

Package: login
Version: 1:4.2-3.1
Severity: normal


I have an ODROID XU4 (an ARM-based board). Its serial console comes up by
default on /dev/ttySAC2; however, there's no entry for that in /dev/securetty,
so it's impossible to log in as root on the serial console. Do you think you
could add it? I suppose /dev/ttySAC[0-3] would be an okay bet, although
I haven't looked deeply into it.
