I’ve been curious about using NixOS as a minimal text-only terminal on super small hardware. Has anyone been able to use the Yaft package to achieve this? The typical Linux kernel is limited to 8 colors, and an alternative tty like this could make working on a text only setup a huge improvement!
Hey, I am working on something like this as well.
There are multiple types of framebuffer terminals. Is YAFT the best one, or how did you come across it? There is also KMSCon, which i am not sure works for your purpose.
I found this blogpost with a list of terminals.
Looking forward to hear what you eventually settled upon.
