I have this kind of behavior and I don't know how to fix it or even how to search a fix for it since I don't know how would I even call it.
Here's what's happening:
The first time I boot, when I type out the username and press Retrun the password prompt appears about a half or a quarter seconds later. The problem is that after I type the username I usually press Return and immediately start typing the password; however since the
Password: hasn't appeared yet, the
tty starts printing the characters I type directly onto the screen.
For example, let's say my username and password are:
If I were to login in a
tty1 it would look something like this. The "Pa" at the beginning is there because I had started typing "Password" before
Password: actually appeared.
Debian GNU/Linux stretch/sid hostname tty1 hostname login: Username PaPassword:
A simple solution to this would of course be to type the username and wait a little before typing out the password, however I wish to get to the bottom of this and find the cause of this problem. I have a fear that some day the prompt could lag a lot longer than a quarter of a second (e.g. few seconds) and I would have accidentally typed my whole password onto screen before the
Password: finally appeared.
Is there a way to know what's happening here?
