ctrl+alt+F6 does NOT restore console


Running slack9.1 on my box.
Couldn't get twinview working so i took a slightly different approach, this is the relevant information:

#**********************************************************************

EndSection

So, now when I log out of X and get to the GDM screen I want to able to press ctrl+alt+F6 to get in to tty6. This was possible before I altered the screen settings. Now when I press those keys the screen just goes black. If I press ctrl+alt+F7 i get back into GDM.
Any suggestions?

Could you post your /etc/inittab file?
