DJM-1 2.6 /dev/console & root login I'm not sure you can allow root login on /dev/console and on /dev/vt#. The /etc/default/login variable CONSOLE only specifies a single device and I'm not sure I'm comfortable with /dev/console meaning /dev/console and all of /dev/vt. However I do see possible value in allowing local root logins on multiple vts, so I'll need to think more about this. DJM-2 2.7.2 ACLs for usb etc devices Are you saying that if user "bob" logins in on vt1 and user "alice" logins on vt2 then there will be an ACL of both of them on the audio and usb devices ? I don't think this is a good idea. I'm also concerned about how this interacts with device allocation and Trusted Extensions. Please ask the security community to review this whole proposal for possible interactions with Trusted Extensions. DJM-3 2.8 SMF Service As per my previous emails I believe that the /dev/vt# devices should just be instances of console-login and you should not need a separate vconsole-login even due to Zones. DJM-4 2.9 tipline How does this interact with consadm(1M) ? DJM-5 2.10 kmdb I expected that kmdb and panic would not be displayed on the current vt but only on the console and that you would still be able to switch to the console to interact with kmdb. However I think this mode might be acceptable and even desirable in some cases. DJM-6 2.12 Xorg What about Xsun since that is still used on SPARC. DJM-7 General Is the ioctl interface compatible with that on any other platform or is it unique to OpenSolaris systems ? -- Darren J Moffat
