missing tty


Hi, I changed the inittab to runlevel 4 so it boot straight to KDM, but while KDE runs I cannot go to other tty. The ctrl+alt+F1 until F6, well the tty1 seems running the tty7(the GUI), but tty2-6 I just found a blank screen.

On my previous distro I can still get the 6 ttys even in runlevel 4.

What config do I have to change, I just install the ati driver, is it the problem?

iirc, that is the default behavior for runlevel 4

just edit inittab and add support
for the runlevel to each of the ttys

As kodon said, that's the default behavior, you need to edit /etc/inittab to enable all consoles on runlevel 4.
Changes this lines:
Code:
# These are the standard console login getties in multiuser mode:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux

woo hoo... thx for the detail, now I can get the other SIX ttys, but I got another problem:
I cant logout from KDE button
Log Out -> End Current Session -> MY PC HANG
I mean really locked up, cant change to other ttys, cant ctrl+ald+del or ctrl+alt+backspace.

But I got no problems for shutting down, and reboot, ne1 with the same problem?
