OPENVT(1) Linux 1.x OPENVT(1) NAME openvt - start a program on a new virtual terminal (VT). SYNOPSIS openvt [-c vtnumber] [OPTIONS] [--] command DESCRIPTION openvt will find the first available VT, and run on it the given com- mand with the given command options, standard input, output and error are directed to that terminal. The current search path ($PATH) is used to find the requested command. If no command is specified then the environment variable $SHELL is used. OPTIONS -c, --console=VTNUMBER Use the given VT number and not the first available. Note you must have write access to the supplied VT for this to work; -f, --force Force opening a VT without checking whether it is already in use; -e, --exec Directly execute the given command, without forking. This option is meant for use in /etc/inittab. If you want to use this feature in another context, be aware that openvt has to be a session leader in order for -e to work. See setsid(2) or set- sid(1) on how to achieve this. -s, --switch Switch to the new VT when starting the command. The VT of the new command will be made the new current VT; -u, --user Figure out the owner of the current VT, and run login as that user. Suitable to be called by init. Shouldn't be used with -c or -l; -l, --login Make the command a login shell. A - is prepended to the name of the command to be executed; -v, --verbose Be a bit more verbose; -w, --wait wait for command to complete. If -w and -s are used together then openvt will switch back to the controlling terminal when the command completes; -V, --version print program version and exit; -h, --help show this text and exit. -- end of options to openvt. NOTE If openvt is compiled with a getopt_long() and you wish to set options to the command to be run, then you must supply the end of options -- flag before the command. EXAMPLES openvt can be used to start a shell on the next free VT, by using the command: openvt bash To start the shell as a login shell, use: openvt -l bash To get a long listing you must supply the -- separator: openvt -- ls -l HISTORY Earlier, openvt was called open. It was written by Jon Tombs <firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com>. The -w idea is from "sam". SEE ALSO chvt(1), doshell(8), login(1) 19 Jul 1996 V1.4 OPENVT(1)
