Just a curiousity...
After a long session of sitting in front of my linux box configuring i don't know what, I was putting away my keyboard and mouse. My second machine doesn't have a desk so I store the K+M on a shelf in close reach.
Anyways, I must have pressed something because when I looked at my monitor again, expecting to see the usual
Mandrake Linux release 9.2 (FiveStar) for i586...
login screen, I saw nothing but garbled text.
It looked like shorewall was blurting stuff to the screen. I went over to my other machine and tested my webpages, ftp site, ... and they all worked. And as I accessed those things, more blurts on the first machines came onto the screen telling me exactly who was accessing the machine... me.
I pressed ctrl+alt+Fn and all ttys worked, but now I want to see that screen again.
Is it something I pressed? How can I make my monitor a real live feed from my shorewall logs?
Thanks in advance,
