My first fedora 11 beta run-in with not having dontzap set to false.

I have a dual twin setup. This already requires an xorg.conf file,
because in the no-config running, xorg decides you want to only use
one of the two screens it finds. I don't know why, I consider it a bug.

I configure it to have dual screen. When I login, my window manager dies
on me. My gnome panel only works in my left screen, but anything I
select pops up on the right screen, out of focus. I can move my mouse
into the other screen but I cannot get any focus. So I cannot get to a
terminal or any other application.

So I ctrl-alt-f2. Now my left monitor goes into standby mode and my
right monitor just shows a blinking cursor. The same for all VC's except
alt-f7 which brings me back to my broken X session.

I had to login via ssh to fix my machine, because I could not restart X.
Indeed, i did not have sysrq enabled yet, that's disabled per default it
seems.

+1 for reverting to the old behaviour of having ctrl-alt-backspace kill
the current X session.


Sorry Paul. But it does not look like, from what I read here, that there
will be a vote on this. It appears that you, and all others, have two options.

1: Live with it as default 'off'.

2: Change it to 'on' to suit yourself.

Great thing about Linux. You can do pretty much just as you wish.

Good luck.


the vote was taken in secret by the xorg folks a while ago, real community spirit in action!
