What version is this? I don't see any upgrades available for kudzu on
updates-testing:

# rpm -q kudzu
kudzu-1.2.34.5-1

# yum --enablerepo=updates-testing upgrade kudzu
...
Could not find update match for kudzu
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

/etc/inittab contains:

# Run gettys in standard runlevels
co:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty xvc0 9600 vt100-nav

xvc0 is in /etc/securetty

I see this in the console:
Starting HAL daemon: [  OK  ]
INIT: Id "co" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel
INIT: Id "co" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "co" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Ah, this looks like an SELinux issue:

# audit2allow -i /var/log/audit/audit.log  -l
allow getty_t device_t:chr_file getattr;

This fixes it:
chcon --reference=/dev/tty0 /dev/xvc0

or

chcon -t tty_device_t /dev/xvc0

R.
