The number of virtual consoles with logins are controlled by /etc/inittab through F8. It changes in F9 - it looks like upstart

my ref is to what i have seen up thru f8 and m2k8.0.

i was aware of assignment from cromix and have a 'linux encyclopedia'
that has several howto's for using vc8 -> vc12. there is even one that
shows how to have vc1 -> vc24.

it was easy enough, tried and liked it. did not see need justified time
to go thru with every new install.

years back, early linux, i admired and amused by a 'admin station' that
was set up to use 'f13' -> 'f24' keys to bring workstations up in a
quad split screen. 'f' key toggled station on/off to open split. neat.




in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
