+qingy (Framebuffer getty replacement)
+qingy is a replacement of getty.
+Written in C, it uses DirectFB to provide a fast, nice GUI
+without the overhead of the X Window System.
+It allows the user to log in and start the session of his choice
+(text console, gnome, kde, wmaker, ...).
+This SlackBuild compiles qingy without its screensaver feature because
+it caused qingy to crash immediately upon startup and render the terminal
+To use qingy as a replacement for agetty, simply edit your /etc/inittab
+and change the console login lines from:
+ c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty --noclear 38400 tty1 linux
+ c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
+ c3:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
+ c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
+ c5:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
+ c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
+ c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty1
+ c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty2
+ c3:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty3
+ c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty4
+ c5:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty5
+ c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/qingy tty6
+It would be wise to leave agetty on at least one console until you're
+sure that qingy is working correctly for you.
