When modify the /etc/inittab, change the following line as:

S:12345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty console
#add the line
1:12345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1

It can switch into runlevel 1 by run init 1 on target.


Modify the inittab file as the following:
change the following line as:
S:12345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty console
#add the following line
1:12345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1

Steps to Reproduce

1. create project with the following options:
/data/devel/windriver/5.0/wrlinux-5/wrlinux/configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc_std --with-layer=/bsp/xe105-wr5.x-bsp-v0.9.0b00/xe105-layer --enable-reconfig --with-rcpl-version=0003

2. run "init 1" on target, it can't run into shell
