NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     cons - HP300 console interface

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This release supports a ``virtual'' console device used  for
kernel printf
     messages  and accessed in user mode via /dev/console.  It is
virtual in
     the sense that it is attached to  a  hardware  interface  at
boot time.  Currently
  the  choices  are  limited  to: a bit-mapped display
(grf(4)) acting
     as an Internal Terminal Emulator (ITE), a  serial  interface
(apci(4) or
     dca(4)), or a null console, in that order.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     apci(4), dca(4), grf(4), intro(4), ite(4), tty(4), reboot(8)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     It should be possible to specify potential  console  devices
at config(8)

OpenBSD      3.6                           June      9,      1993
