Virtual Consoles don't listen to the boss
Normally I press Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6] to switch to a virtual console.
Today I have a fresh install of Slackware 12.1, and who can describe my stupefaction when I unsuspectingly pressed Ctrl+Alt+F2 from within X, and be met with the familiar textual login.... that doesn't take input from the keyboard :amazed:
When I boot to textual mode it works fine and I can switch between virtual consoles as often as I like (but why would I? With screen patched to allow both horizontal and vertical splitting of tha console)
Pray, tell me, how do I go about fixing this? Anyone else have this (rather odd) behavior (and fixed it)?
