agetty log spam

Recommended Posts

I'm getting spam in my logs in my container from agetty like this:

Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5782]: /dev/tty1: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory                                                                                  
Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5784]: /dev/tty3: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory                                                                                  
Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5786]: /dev/tty5: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory                                                                                  
Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5787]: /dev/tty6: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory                                                                                  
Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5783]: /dev/tty2: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory                                                                                  
Jul 21 00:19:58 dkg agetty[5785]: /dev/tty4: cannot open as standard input: No such file or directory

Which is true, those devices do not exist.  And it makes sense that a container isn't going to have all these ttys, either.  I just don't know how to tell it not to look for them.

Thanks.
