ssh terminal err.. stuff

Post by Master of Reality »

Is there a way to access one of the terminals that is on a machine through ssh.

The situation is: I have a networked debian box attached to no peripherals. I did an # apt-get install something && logout before i took the peripherals off, figuring it would finish and everything would be fine. Now i'm pretty sure that a configuration screen is waiting for me on the first TTY (cant get a lock on deb stuff over ssh).

Is there someway i can access it from me Fedora desktop machine without me having to hookup a monitor and keyboard again to the debian box?

Why not just kill the apt process and start it again in an ssh session? If it finished the install you should be able to just do a "dpkg-reconfigure packagename".
