CONFIG_MCONSOLE: Management console

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_MCONSOLE has multiple definitions:

Management console found in arch/um/Kconfig.um

The configuration item CONFIG_MCONSOLE:

Help text

The user mode linux management console is a low-level interface to the kernel, somewhat like the i386 SysRq interface. Since there is a full-blown operating system running under every user mode linux instance, there is much greater flexibility possible than with the SysRq mechanism.

If you answer 'Y' to this option, to use this feature, you need the mconsole client (called uml_mconsole) which is present in CVS in 2.4.5-9um and later (path /tools/mconsole), and is also in the distribution RPM package in 2.4.6 and later.

It is safe to say 'Y' here.
