Indeed, alt + F2 show the login prompt. But before I pressed alt + F2 ps
was not showing any "*getty" program, a bit confusing, especially since
there is nothing on first console.

Maybe, but I never asked to have prefdm and in fact I don't want X
All sys admin expect to have a tty on first console and just having
"starting dm service" whereas I know it cannot start is really
Cannot prefdm/X11/whatever be started on 7nd console like during the
years 90th ? :)
