Re: [MiNT] Virtual Consoles (found it :-)

After lots of digging I found the vcons sources in a pretty obvious

Is it the latest version? I have modified it at one point in time and then somebody else hacked on it as well.

I've only browsed them briefly, but before I spend too much time with
it I would like to know in what way it is considered a dirty hack
(apart from the obvous - messing with video hardware etc.).

Messing with video (and I think also keyboard) is not enough for you to call it a dirty hack? :-)

You sound like you want to fix the Vconsoles by reimplementing the dirty parts by system clean programming. With VDI under kernel control it would probably be possible. Or maybe implement it completely in user space? :-))
