This week end, I discovered that "chvt x" works fine with x between 1

to disk is that it switches to console. If that doesn't happen, I really
don't know what's going on.

It's still very experimental, but I hope to have a patch available to
apply on top of 2.6.12 when it gets released. In the meantime, You can
find my preliminary patch on linuxppc-dev list if you want to toy with
