Get active console number (fgconsole)
« on: April 26, 2010, 02:37:23 AM »
Hello!

I'm looking for fgconsole program that gives active (foreground) console number.
In kbd-1.15 package (Fedora) it calls "ioctl(fd, VT_GETSTATE, &vtstat)" and returns "vtstat.v_active".

Is there such program available for TinyCore?

If not, I've made a patch for busybox-1.14.3 that implements this feature.

None that I know of. Please send the modifications upstream in addition to here, though.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Ok, I've filed bug #1639 (patch updated to 1.16.1).

Your patch for 1.16.1 broke the busybox help; attached a patch for that.

The file was supposed to be alpha sorted, and fgconsole was originally right after chvt :)
