How do I get all 6 virtual terminals in back level 4


I have gotten in the habit of building in the virtual terminals
I use the hell out of gpm doing it I cheat badly by assembling
command lines the terminal emulators are a real pain in the ass
doing this I have to select then bring up the menu select copy
switch to the next terminal emulator bring up the menu select
past go to the another terminal emulator etc etc etc

wow what a sentence!

Some punctuation would go a long way into making your post actually make some sense.

I assume you want more than just tty6 enabled in run-level 4?

Simply edit /etc/inittab and add a "4" into the c(x) lines

Make the following lines match the line for c6

Code:
c1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
You'll end up with this

Code:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
Issue the command 'init q' to reload the inittab.

also consider learning how to use screen. It even has copy/paste functionality in it, and the ability to resume detached sessions can be a life saver during ssh sessions.

All the terminal emulators I've used support the standard X11, drag(or double click) to select and middle mouse button to paste method just like gpm does. Bringing up the terminal's menus to copy/paste between them shouldn't be necessary.
