Well, I suggest that you strace manually your uugetty
issue from the bash prompt `strace uugetty ttyS1 F38400 vt1000 2>logfile'
and then have a look at logfile.. the times I had this problem,
there was something wrong with /etc/gettydefs(i.e. there was no entry for
Now my inittab line looks like this:

d1:3:respawn:/sbin/uugetty -d /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS0 ttyS0 M19200 vt100

and my gettydefs entry:

M19200# B19200 CS8 CRTSCTS # B19200 SANE -ISTRIP CRTSCTS #@S Login: #M19200

and it works..

Hope this will do it for you,
