Why only one console?!
« on: June 06, 2017, 01:43:55 AM »
/etc/inittab, which is INaccessible for fixing: limits the VTs to 1 only.
Using sudo su, and repeated openvt, I can get a chain of ROOT VTs.
But many actions require non-ROOT.

It's in the initrd. It's not inaccessible except for those who don't read.
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:remastering
However...
limits the VTs to 1 only.
If you can't "fix" the files in your initrd because you refuse to read the wiki and/or the book, you could still use the 
multivt 
boot code, as it has been suggested to you several times I think. That's much easier, too, btw.

What would be the point in remapping the  CapsLock key  to the  * key  ?

@ Rich,
I don't quite understand why you're reacting to this obviously irrelevant, substance-less statement. If you're not trolling back, that is.

? let's see if this <new route in links works> ?
Why does M$pook on this laptop consider it good reason to !BEEP! for CapsLock?
If it's not obvious try google.

Imagine a textEditor, that had a <READ THE BOOK> listing of 748 words, which instead of
the NORMAL [6 VTs] had it's own/quirky/special spelling, where the well notified/reported
special/non-standard spelling, meant as much to you, when reading about them, without any
meaningfull context................
 It's like claiming that you can spell any word that your once read.
