problem switching to a virtual terminal


Hey,

i have a problem switching to a virtual terminal using ctrl+alt+f1. when i try, nothing happens.

it worked a while ago, and i don't know what gone wrong.

what are the places to look in?

I use mandrake 9.1 with kde (although i tried the same thing under gnome and the same problem occurs).

thanks, Or.
(and sorry for my bad English)

You might want to try C+A+F2, see if that works for you.. and then press C+F7 to go back to the X environment
