RE: Ctrl-Alt-F3 Broken?

Look in the /etc/inittab file and see if the mingetty's have been removed.

# Run gettys in standard runlevels
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6

Either that you forgot to install the mingetty-*.rpm

Subject: Ctrl-Alt-F3 Broken?


We have a heavily-customized RH 7.3 distro where we've integrated KDE 
3.1.4, Ximian Desktop 2 and XFree86 4.3.0.  During kickstart, we've 
noticed the alternate screens like Ctrl-Alt-F2, F3, F4 no longer work.  
Originally we thought it was because we had removed the XFree3* RPMs from 
our distro and anaconda relied on them.

Any ideas what would stop Ctrl-Alt-F3 from working?  Is it some 
interraction problem between anaconda + XFree 4.3?
