Move description of TTY.

Hello,

I want to move the part reading "agetty is the default getty in Arch Linux, as part of the util-linux package. It modifies the TTY settings [...] six of these virtual consoles are provided by default in Arch Linux. They are usually accessible by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 through Ctrl+Alt+F6.", as to remove the Template:Style flag.

I suggest we :

  • Put "agetty is the default getty in Arch Linux." in the description of getty.
  • Add a section :
== Basic Usage ==
		
agetty modifies the TTY settings while waiting for a login so that the newlines are not translated to CR-LFs. This tends to cause a "staircase effect" for messages printed to the console.
				
It manages virtual consoles and six of these virtual consoles are provided by default in Arch Linux. They are usually accessible by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 through Ctrl+Alt+F6.
  • Modify the Installation section :
agetty is part of the util-linux package.

Alternatives include...
