Virtual Consoles are not Coming Up


Hi,


I recently installed RHEL 5.2 on my system. I found that I was not able to show up virtual consoles that we generally do by hitting Ctrl + Alt + F1 through F6.

I installed Red Hat again but the same problem is there. However, I can go into Run Level 3 by

Code:
init 3
but it takes too long to display the prompt. Besides, hitting Ctrl key generates error "unrecognized key" something like that.


What could be the problem?



Update:

Today I installed Virutal Box on Windows XP Host. Then I installed RHEL 5.2. There also I faced the same problem.

However, Virtual Box works fine and I am glad that I can now have only one Host OS on my system and then install as many Guest OSes as I want. Dual Boot System was giving me a heacdache.

If you have paid for RHEL then contact Red Hat with your problem.
