How to get different terminals for dual monitor scheme without X

Posted on

Problem :

I have Ubuntu installed without X.org with two monitors(single card: vga and dvi)
Login shell is cloned for both monitors.
I there any way to have different shells(tty) for these monitors?

Solution :

It seems possible – the insturctions are a bit dated, but given that framebuffer console support has been in kernel for ages, and there is a framebuffer terminal emulator, you probably can achieve this.
