I am experimenting with virtual terminals and i am using Red Hat 8.0. When I log in as a normal or root and start GUI I press Alt + F1 it doesn't prompt me for the user name and passwd, instead it gives me a short cut.
I tried to do it in command line mode, but nothing happened.
Please let me know that how this "Virtual Terminals" stuff works.
and How can i find out as a root that how many virtual terminal sessions are going on at any particulat time.
