Shell console out of GNOME/KDE


Hi,
I have one 3rd party application using in Solaris 10. This application crashes and closes the shell terminal automatically. I even not able to see any console output. Is there any way i can save shell console not to close?

I have linux red hat. I press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to Ctrl-Alt-F4 to get shell console which is out of X11. How to get same in Solaris 10. Hope that will solve or give me some idea.


regards,
Shaan

In the terminal run the "script /tmp/mylog" command, then launch your application in the sae terminal, all the dialog/messages will be in "/tmp/mylog".

Solaris stopped supporting virtual terminals since version 7 I think (not sure if it was for security issues or just because it was thought that CDE multiple workspaces was better/enough), so unfortunately there is no way to have concurrently a console mode and an X11 server on a single display.

I don't understand how that would help you better than "script" in the problem you're facing though.
