    virtual consoles


    Dear linux folks,

    I'm having a hard time with virtual consoles and I was wondering if someone could help.
    I know that linux comes with six virtual consoles and you can access them by pressing Alt-F<n> where n ranges from 1 through 6. Furthermore, I noticed that Ctrl-Alt-F<n> will give you a virtual console with no X with a login prompt. Now, my problem is that once I go into virtual console with no X, I cannot go back to the the original virtual console(with X) that I was in. Is there a way to get back to the original X supporting virtual console?
