I am having trouble signing into a virtual terminal.  This issue is only
happening on one computers I have Guix installed on.

If I follow these steps I can reproduce this issue after multiple
install attempts.

1) install Guix
   https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/guix/guix-system-install-1.2.0.i686-linux.iso.xz
2) reboot at the end of the install process
3) sign into a virtual terminal
4) do a pull and system reconfigure
5) reboot the system
6) decrypt root partition (keyboard is working)

When I get to a virtual terminal prompt the system seems to go
unresponsive.  As I type on the keyboard nothing shows up at the login
prompt.  Alt + function key does not switch to another virtual
terminal.

I can however sign in using ssh and use the computer.

Output of `guix describe`:

When I'm in a desktop environment, Alt + Function key doesn't work
(it does some other things), but Control + Alt + Function key does work.
Maybe something similar is the case here?

Greetings,
Maxime.

The last thing that is output to the screen is:

```
This is the GNU system. Welcome.
<host-name> login: _
```

Neither of these work to switch to another virtual terminal:
* Control + Alt + <function-key> (ex. Control + Alt + F2)
* Alt + <function-key> (ex. Alt + F2)

I am not using:
* graphical environment
** graphical desktop
** graphical window manager
* display manager service

I don't have any more suggestions, sorry.
Maybe someone else can help you.

Greetings,
Maxime
