Multiple EGLFS (or LinuxFB) apps and virtual consoles



  • Hey,

    I want to run two separate embedded applications on two different virtual consoles and switch between them. Ideally I need something like Alt+F1 for the primary app, Alt+F2 for the second app and Alt+F3 for the standard linux text console.

    Currently when I run an app neither Alt+Fx or Ctrl+Alt+Fx work. I can use sudo chvt x from the ssh session to switch between the virtual consoles, but when I try to call it with the EGLFS app running chvt just hangs forever.

    Is there a way to have multiple consoles for the embedded world?

    Thanks.
