I know that some people have fancy little scripts to start their UML
instances, but I can't figure out how exactly to have it log the output
of UML start up while being able to background it properly too.
If I don't bother backgrounding it, I can just do;
~/bin/linux-net ubd0=uml-root mem=16M con1=pts > ./uml.log
which works fine. However, the terminal which I run UML from is useless,
since it becomes stdin for the UML's 0th console. If I pipe /dev/null to
stdin, or otherwise tell it to use something else, it backgrounds
properly, but it doesn't spit out the pts which the first virtual
console is on - Sort of useful, so I can actually use it.
I'm sure this is really basic, and I'm just too dumb to work it out, but
I can't figure out a different way to find out the pts for the console.
