Any thoughts on minimum requirements to successfully execute an "openvt"?


At present I'm getting...

Could not get a file descriptor referring to the console

...from the user in question.

Hey There,

I believe the most pressing requirement is that you have a local console. If you try to do it from a remote session (ssh, telnet, etc) you'll get that error because it's using a pseudo terminal.

Let me know if I was way off-base with that answer and maybe I can be more helpful.

In any event, best wishes, and I wish you good luck

, Mike
