Posted by Divago on Feb. 25 2008,15:01Dunno if this is the right place to post it because is not an X problem, but still a "graphic/monitor" problem
i got a DSL disk installed with two monitor (i use a usb-to-vga adapter to add a second monitor in usb port )
it work fine
but whenever i do "reboot" command, either via ssh or via shell, it doesn't show the standard "sending processes the TERM signal" and "Backing up files to..."
those messages are shown on the "second console", i mean, if i hit shift+F2 i see regularly logout messages.
if i unplug usb-to-vga adapter (and then boot system with a single monitor) or if i switch screen from XFree, logout messages are shown correctly on "first console" (sorry dunno what is the exact technical word )?
there is a command (something similar to stdierr or stdio or...) to point console logout messages on shift+F1?
ty for help

So type chv and press tab, and if it is there, you can put "chvt 1" to your shutdown.sh in /opt to have it change to tty1 on shutdown.

that sounds real interesting!
how to install it?
is it just a duplicate of the 1st monitor or another part of the virtual desktop?
does it only work with xfree ?
