I'm wondering if this is possible: I have stuff happening in TTY1 (i.e. the big console I get by hitting ctrl-alt-F1), and if at all possible I'd like to "watch" it in some way from my graphical interface (ctrl-alt-F7), possibly in a terminal window.
Is this possible? Can I tell a terminal window not to spawn a shell, but just use an already existing one? I don't need to be able to interact with it, although that would also be nice. I really just want to see it. The reason for having it on TTY1 instead of just running the shell in the graphical env is because I might need to restart the graphical environment and don't want the process to end.
