Up: NetBSD Notes for the
One gotcha that I ran into is the console emulator on console 0. This
emualtor is vt100. On this console none of the function keys works as
function key. The echo what appear to be ansi codes. Switching to
console 1 uses a differnet emulation that does support the function keys,
so that programs such as mc(midnight commander) function correctly.
NetBSD also only provides 4 initial virtual terminals unlike FreeBSD's 7.
