Thanks for reminding me, I need to remember these keystrokes.
How does it work? On my system, I push shift+ctrl+alt with my 1st
hand, any two of print/scroll/pause with my 2nd hand. At this stage, I
get a user friendly manual with "showTasks" as one my options. With my
third hand I push the T button, and get what looks like a complete
stack trace that overflows the dmesg buffer, let alone the screen. Oh
wait, I can't do that, I just remembered I only have two hands...
Maybe this has changed in the 2.6 kernels.
I don't think it will work from X-Windows when the system is too
bogged down to switch to a text console though...
