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
