I'm configuring LFS linux and I want to select right "getty" for /etc/inittab to handle text consoles /dev/tty1 - /dev/tty6 (the text consoles handled by linux kernel, with output on first display).

There is agetty, is it good for tty1, or it is limited only for modems like ttyS0?

If I should use other implementation of getty, what is the package name?
