Question KDE & Terminal Switch = Crash


Hello All,

Thanks in advance for any help. I do appreciate it.

My Situation:
============
While in either KDE or Gnome I open a second terminal with a key sequence of (Ctrl+Alt+F2). The second terminal opens successfully. When returning to the 1st terminal again with (Ctrl+Alt+F2) KDE/Gnome has crashed.

I have produced identical results in Red Hat 7.3 & Suse 8.0 in both KDE and Gnome and all "online" updates had been applied successfully.

**************************************************

Hardware Notes:
============
I suspect this could be a video card issue. I'm using a ATI Radeon 7500. In all tests the resolution was set to 1024x768@85Hrtz and 16bit color.


Thanks again for any help.
Scott

Linux usually reserves tty7 for x.Try a ctrl-alt-f7 to return to desktop.

Did you know you can start multiple X sessions on a single machine? Just switch to terminal (ctrl-alt-F2) from X, login and startx -- :1, now if you want to switch between X sessions you can use ctrl-alt-f7 and ctrl-alt-f8, you can spawn as many X session as your system resources will allow and you have enough F keys.
