    Subjectwishlist: vnc framebuffer device?
    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    Hi folks,

    To make a headless system "less headless", would it be possible
    to integrate a vnc framebuffer device into the kernel?

    The idea is to have a vnc server instead of a local screen and
    keyboard to show the boot output and to provide a console login
    on /dev/tty{1..6}. It would be pretty similar to qemu. No need
    for fancy graphics, of course. The IP address might either be
    obtained using DHCP, or it might use an IP address/netmask
    given on the kernel command line.

    I understand that authentication might be an issue here.

    Hopefully this isn't one of the oh-no-not-again questions. I
    haven't seen it mentioned on the kernel or linux-console
    mailing lists before.


    Regards

    Harri
