Physical Terminal (udev) problems
There appears to be an additional wrinkle when using a user virtual terminal. Symptoms: The User Screen overwrites the IDE screen. Analysis: In ~/ide/fpusrscr.pas source code, in 'constructor TLinuxScreen.Init;', where FName = '/dev/vcsa/x'
TYFd:= fpOpen(FName, &666, O_RdWr);
always returns a '-1' due to the standard udev permissions for /dev/vcc/a* . Brute force work-around: As root, chmod 666 /dev/vcc/a*" or edit /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules to make the permissions at boot: original: KERNEL=="vcsa[0-9]*", NAME="vcc/a%n", SYMLINK+="%k", GROUP="tty" to: KERNEL=="vcsa[0-9]*", NAME="vcc/a%n", SYMLINK+="%k", GROUP="tty", MODE="666" Other: Maybe there is an underlying incompatibility between grab_vcsa and udev ?
