Implementations of Mirage console devices
README

v3.0.2

The Unix version of the console currently uses standard output. The code is in

unix/console.{ml,mli}

The Xen kernel version of the console uses the primary PV console ring. The
code is in

xen/console.{ml,mli}

There is also a Unix userspace utility which creates and services Xen consoles
("console backends"):

Connect a console to a VM like this:

[root@st30 ~]# ./mirage-console connect trusty
Operating on VM domain id: 19
Creating device 1 (linux device /dev/tty1)
{ ref = 128; event_channel = 13 }

Then inside the guest:

[root@trusty ~]# cat > /dev/hvc1
hello
there

And observe in dom0:

hello
there

Then hit Control+C and it all cleans up.
