Initially, fgetty was just a mingetty clone. Why clone mingetty? Because fgetty is much smaller. The name is kind of lame, but I did not find a name that sounded smaller than mingetty.

fgetty links against the diet libc to achieve the small footprint.

I recently (December 2000) added a login to fgetty. My login uses checkpassword, a cool concept for pluggable authentication from DJ Bernstein, to authenticate users.
