Must be some update that broke this, I don't know where to start
looking. If you sort off remember when it happened you could take a look
at the output of "rpm -q -a --last", it is packages installed sorted by
install time.

Yes, I saw that as well, makes sense. I don't know which other package
is in the loop for controlling the tty's other than the kernel. I take
it that you have checked the permissions of /dev/ttyS*, right? (should
be fine because the device is apparently being opened).
