443Another issue is the difference in naming of terminals between devfs and udev.
444While devfs calls its terminals <c>tty</c>, udev calls them <c>vc</c>. This
445could lead to a problem in case you are restricting root logins from consoles
446using <path>/etc/securetty</path>. You will need to make sure that <c>tty1</c>
447is changed to <c>vc/1</c> in <path>/etc/securetty</path> to ensure that root
448can login using the console.
