You haven't trashed anything! You are probably using a slackware
ditribution and it did not make the device /dev/console. Simply cd to
/dev. and type make console. If that gives you some errors there is
probably a a file called MAKEFILE-C.README or something. Look in there
and se what device the console was setup under (ie, perhaps /dev/cons is
defined as console.) then simply make <enter new name here>. I kept
getting errors when I went through this, but after likie 4 times i did
la -al | grep console and it was there. Also make sure that you run
Xconfig in /usr/X11R6/xf86config so that you can configure your monitor
and video card settings.
Hope this helps someone! :)
