FS#16 - normal user login fails over serial/ttys

Only root can login over serial or ttys, and only if it has no password. Ssh login works fine. After some debugging it seems to be PAM issue, possibly recipes/shadow/ misconfiguration in OE. Maybe we sould use IMAGE_LOGIN_MANAGER = "busybox" instead of IMAGE_LOGIN_MANAGER = "shadow" as we don't need super security?

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Tried with pandora-20100102-new-kernel-x-fixes, does work.

I'll try and debug the PAM issue, we used to use Busybox as the login manager but that seems to cause all sorts of subtle issues down the line with other PAM aware apps not getting what they expect (that was the reason for the switch to shadow). I have added and /etc/securetty and some PAM logging and I'll try and get this sorted.

Seems to work fine with the latest image. Did login as normal user via the devboard. Can somebody confirm so we can close it?
