You might check that you have a getty on the device.
run "ps -A | less" and look for something like
 1991 tty2     00:00:00 mingetty
 1992 tty3     00:00:00 mingetty
 1993 tty4     00:00:00 mingetty
 1994 tty5     00:00:00 mingetty
 1995 tty6     00:00:00 mingetty

This is from my machine that works as advertised.
