Change the value of CONSOLE_DEVICES in your config file. Condor will look at /dev/{things listed as CONSOLE_DEVICES} when it determines the value of ConsoleIdle exported in each machine's ClassAd.

Is there an easy way to prevent Condor from trying to get this information? When I uncomment the variable, or point it to things that actually exist (e.g. /dev/console), the error still pops up every five seconds.

I'm using Condor on 4-CPU 64-bit AMD Opteron machines (Arch = 'x86_64') running Linux 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4smp. These machines are intended to be dedicated (i.e. processes should not be suspended if someone logs on).
