    Ctrl-Alt-Bksp doesn't work (RH 9)


    When I try to kill X via Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, nothing happens. This is under RedHat 9; I had no problems under RedHat 8.

    Also, Ctrl-Alt-F2 doesn't do anything, it used to give me a text-mode console.

    Anybody else had this?

    It might be configured that way. For example, there is the "DontZap" option in XF86Config that disables the use of Ctrl-Alt_BkSpc.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I checked my /etc/X11/XF86Config, but it didn't have the DontZap option set.
    Any other ideas?
