You probably need to give the path to the console server with -c /dev/vcs

because you first need to run the console client and a repeater.

To sum it up (and as should be explained in the documentation), run

console -d pc_kbd --repeat=kbd -d vga -d pc_mouse --repeat=mouse -d generic_speaker -c /dev/vcs
