In forums been a lot times asked how to remove unneded TTY to save speed and Ram for older comps.


TTY`s are beeing started if theres file in /etc/init/tty[1-6].conf and it contains line start on runlevel [23] Long method is to make line unexecutable by puting in front of it # #start on runlevel [23]
