Return to Gui from Console Fails

Postby smitty1 » 06 Sep 2013 14:24

This may have been discussed before but I have not been able to locate anything on it.
When I switch to using a console with

Code: Select all

ctrl-alt-F1
everything is fine, but when I try to go back to the gui with

Code: Select all

alt-F7 
the sytem freezes solid. The only thing that works is

Code: Select all

ctrl-alt-del
to restart. This is affecting Solydk 64 bit on my laptop, and both 32 & 64 bit versions running in VirtualBox on my desktop machine.

Try Alt-F8 to bring back your desktop after a TTY session.

I don't know why it isn't Alt-F7 and I don't know how to change it, but Alt-F8 works for me.
