Can anyone pls tell what tty7 refers to ?
as i said above. the shell was opened using ctrl + f keys.
it is a real terminal rather then a virtual or pseudo.
tty = (teletypewriter) terminal
pty = pseudo terminal
vty = virtual teletype terminal
ctrl + alt + F2 will most likely get you back to that terminal.
