Use the undocumented VT_GETACTIVE ioctl on stdin (or anything else connected to a vty) which will return the active vty number. You can also disable vty switching, programmatically switch to a particular vty, and do other neat stuff. Take a look at /usr/src/usr.sbin/vidcontrolfor usage examples and /usr/src/sys/dev/syscons/syscons.c for all the possible ioctls. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
