Is there a way of emulating the Linux virtual console inside X?
I. e. an environment where
/dev/tty for all practical
ioctl_console(2)) acts exactly as the Linux console
would but that runs as an X client and can be fired up at will
and allows screenshots?
I want to avoid having to resort to QEMU if possible.
(Note that a terminal emulator will no do as it does not support
Background: I’m programming against the virtual console and need a more efficient (and possibly automatable) approach to testing.
