so you're not running the busybox init?  what version of
init are you running?

busybox init is the only one i know of which takes the
device name from the first field of the line.  in most other
inittabs, that field is simply an identifier.

sulogin gets the tty name as the first argument.  so this says
nothing about /dev/c1 existing or not.

someone else has pointed out that one of these should work:
    c1:1235:respawn:/bin/ash --login

but again -- what version of init are you using?
