When I installed ZipSlack on my girlfriend's laptop there was a thing
where you could switchc between "virtual consoles" I think they were
called. It was by pressing alt+left orr alt+right, does debian have
something like that? And if so what are the keys? And if they are the
same can I change them, reason being the Alt/Option button on the left
side of my keyboard is dead for some reason.
I am interested in this because I would like to be able to spend more
time in debian compiling and whatnot, and rright now the only way I can
do that is if I have a download going in the background for Sarge.
Is there a way to write files to/take files from, my OS X partition in
debian? I tried mounting, which I thought would work, but I guess I
can't read what's actually there because when I installed X I formatted
in Mac OS Extended, or whatever it's called. What I have been doing
thus far is using the 512 chunk I mentioned earlier as a storage device,
ie used mac-fdisk to make it Apple_HFS, and then used OS X to format it
to the standard one.
When I did my limited work in minix there was a suite of tools called
dostools I think, in which you didn't mount anything but put in a
command and then the patition number, and the address of the file in
that partition's tree and optionally a | <command> is there something
like that for debian?
