Re: Cannot switch to VT (console)

Recently I tried to switch to VT (console) and I couldn't - Ctrl+Alt+F1

where to look for the problem; xev detects KeyRelease XF86_Switch_VT_1
event, /etc/inittab contain getty respawns.
Check your xorg.conf and see if the DontVTSwitch option is present.
Also, it could be some problem with your XkbModel setting, like pc105
instead of pc104.
Oh, when I tried chvt 1 it responded:
Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
Did you try that as root?
Debian sid, home-compiled kernel, GDM/Gnome, nvidia-glx
Any suggestions, please?
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
