Subject: [kbd] Return code of openvt command
Date: Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:09:42 -0600
Message-ID: <> (raw)

On openvt from kbd 2.0.2, `openvt -c 1 -fw /bin/false` exits with
return code 0 instead of 1.

There's a bug report from 2003 and a claim that it was resolved as of
kbd 1.14.1:

I'm not sure if this is a bug or desired behavior. 

How can I get the return code of the command passed to openvt?
