I just checked my kernel (also
linux-image-2.6.18-4-486_2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch2_i386.deb) as per
grep SYSRQ /boot/config-$(uname -r)
and it outputs
so i guess the option is compiled in my kernel also.
I find this useful when I'm runing windoze games via cedega, when the
system freezes, some times I'm able to switch to another tty and end the
process but it happens the it can hard freeze and in that case the only
way to unmount my file systems is with sysrq.
Thank you very much.
