Consoles don't display any output

I am using a 64-bit Slackware 13.1 distro (I chose 64 by mistake, to be honest, as I know there's less trouble with a 32-bit distro) and I have some problems with my consoles (in text mode). After changing the runlevel in ininittab to graphic mode (4), I can't enter any of my consoles. Actually, only ctrl+alt F1 shows some output, regarding the graphic mode (I'm currently using KDE4, the default for slackware 13.1) and F6 is the only normal consoles I have access to. However, if I log out and log in (with another user, maybe) there's no output anywhere (not on F1, neither on F6).
What could be the cause? Can anyone help?

This comes up often. In runlevel 4 the only getty process (login prompt) started is on ctrl-alt-f6. If you want to add it to the other vitrual consoles you'll have to edit your /etc/inittab file (it's fairly obvious what needs changing if you look what's already in there).
