I would like to 1) complete disable the screen blanker for the Linux
console, and 2) set the system up so that when the screen blanker
would normaly be invoked, it switches between the virtual TTYs (or a
subset of them). I can then set up several of these to show my
various status pieces, and get a good view of the system at a glance.
Okay, maybe 3 or 4 glances, but still.
Any thoughts? I'm a reasonable programmer if someone can point me at
the correct API for controlling this. I have little interest in
hacking the kernel to do this.
