Unable to decipher ion and login errors
There are 2 logs below. The first showing a boot to login without syscall tracing and the latter with it.
In both instances, I get back to the prompt when I type in the user login (empty password) or root login (password 'password').
With syscall tracing enabled, I see a potentially incriminating exit from ion followed by an exit from login. The sequence can be seen at lines (4987-4988). It is as if ion fails to read something on the heap and then exits gracefully (returns 0) in response to which login does the same. I assume that getty then respawns login and ion.
Any idea what could cause this ?
