Hi KK, thanks. I have tried ctrl+ald+bspace but got a black screen for a split sec abd got right back to KDM login.
ALT+CTRL+Backspace shuts down the X Server the hard way. A Desktop Manager (KDM, GDM, XDM) is supposed to restart after a session is ended, which means that the login screen comes back...
Also tried ctrl+f1, ctrl+f1 etc but go nowhere.
Yepp, but if you try ALT+CTRL+Fx (where 1 >= x <= 8) you'll get a console login screen. Here you'll be able to login as root.
I can get in single user mode but no edit previleges as I am not root. still trying different things. hanks tho.
Nope, you're root if you boot into single user mode. But / is mounted readonly, only. If you boot into single user mode the savest thing to do is: fsck -p mount / -o rw mount -a fsck will first check your file systems so that you don't operate on a dirty FS, e.g. after a crash. If you rebooted into Single User mode and there was no crash before, you can skip this step. mount / -o rw remounts the root filesystem read/writable. mount -a mounts every fs listed in /etc/fstab (that doesn't has "noauto" set as an option). Make sure you'll do a umount -a mount / -o ro before you reboot, otherwise your file systems will be fscked. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
