+# /etc/inittab init(8) configuration for BusyBox
+#
+# Copyright (C) 1999 by Lineo, inc. Written by Erik Andersen
+# <andersen@lineo.com>, <andersee@debian.org>
+#
+#
+# Note, BusyBox init doesn't support runlevels. The runlevels field is
+# completely ignored by BusyBox init. If you want runlevels, use sysvinit.
+#
+#
+# Format for each entry: <id>:<runlevels>:<action>:<process>
+#
+# <id>: WARNING: This field has a non-traditional meaning for BusyBox init!
+#
+# The id field is used by BusyBox init to specify the controlling tty for
+# the specified process to run on. The contents of this field are
+# appended to "/dev/" and used as-is. There is no need for this field to
+# be unique, although if it isn't you may have strange results. If this
+# field is left blank, it is completely ignored. Also note that if
+# BusyBox detects that a serial console is in use, then all entries
+# containing non-empty id fields will _not_ be run. BusyBox init does
+# nothing with utmp. We don't need no stinkin' utmp.
+#
+# <runlevels>: The runlevels field is completely ignored.
+#
+# <action>: Valid actions include: sysinit, respawn, askfirst, wait, and once.
+#
+# Note: askfirst acts just like respawn, but before running the specified
+# process it displays the line "Please press Enter to activate this
+# console." and then waits for the user to press enter before starting
+# the specified process.
+#
+# Note: unrecognised actions (like initdefault) will cause init to emit
+# an error message, and then go along with its business.
+#
+# <process>: Specifies the process to be executed and it's command line.
+#
+# Note: BusyBox init works just fine without an inittab. If no inittab
+# is found, it has the following default behavior:
+# ::sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS
+# ::askfirst:/bin/sh
+# if it detects that /dev/console is _not_ a serial console, it will also run:
+# tty2::askfirst:/bin/sh
+#
+
+
+# Boot-time system configuration/initialization script.
+# This is run first except when booting in single-user mode.
+#
+::sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS
+
+# /bin/sh invocations on selected ttys
+#
+# Start an "askfirst" shell on the console (whatever that may be)
+::askfirst:/bin/sh
+# Start an "askfirst" shell on /dev/tty2
+tty2::askfirst:/bin/sh
+
+# /sbin/getty invocations for selected ttys
+#
+tty4::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
+tty5::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
+
+
+# Example of how to put a getty on a serial line (for a terminal)
+#
+#ttyS0::respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 9600 vt100
+#ttyS1::respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS1 9600 vt100
+#
+# Example how to put a getty on a modem line.
+#ttyS2::respawn:/sbin/getty -x0 -s 57600 ttyS2
+
+# Not currently supported, but may be sometime in the future...
+#::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/reboot
