On a standard PC and some x86 systems, the devc-con or devc-con-hid driver controls the physical console, which consists of the display adapter, the screen, and the system keyboard.

By default, the driver is configured for up to four virtual consoles, /dev/con1... /dev/con4.

The devc-con driver is also the keyboard driver for non-USB keyboards in text mode. You can start the driver with this command:

devc-con &

The devc-con-hid manager is similar to devc-con, but works in conjunction with io-hid and supports PS2, USB, and all other human-interface devices.

For more information, see devc-con and devc-con-hid in the Utilities Reference.
