    SubjectRe: /dev/console should it always be available?

    Well... This patch seems to do nothing... :(
    none of the console= lines I pass to the kernel with lilo seem to work.
    To help facilitate debugging I tried:
    append="console=null console=lp console=tty"
    And that didnt seem to do anything... I still get "cannot open initial console"
    in the logs... An on the lp (I turned on lp message logging in the kernel).

    What am I doing wrong?
