CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE: Support for console on virtual terminal

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE has multiple definitions:

found in arch/sparc/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE:

Help text

The system console is the device which receives all kernel messages and warnings and which allows logins in single user mode. If you answer Y here, a virtual terminal (the device used to interact with a physical terminal) can be used as system console. This is the most common mode of operations, so you should say Y here unless you want the kernel messages be output only to a serial port (in which case you should say Y to "Console on serial port", below).

If you do say Y here, by default the currently visible virtual terminal (/dev/tty0) will be used as system console. You can change that with a kernel command line option such as "console=tty3" which would use the third virtual terminal as system console. (Try "man bootparam" or see the documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to pass options to the kernel at boot time.)

If unsure, say Y.
