Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : X Windows :
Is there a keystroke I can use to kill the X server?
Pressing <option>-<power> will kill the X server. firstname.lastname@example.org@cps.msu.edu
|In linuxppc R5 (and Yellow Dog as well if it uses XFree) ctrl-option-delete will
kill the x server. This is a throwback to the days when linux ran on x86 machines
and ctrl-alt-delete was the keycode to kill Windows.
|Patrick's method for killing X:
Step 1: Hold your hands, palms down, over your keyboard so that the flat of
your hand is roughly parallel to the keyboard surface. Spread your fingers
out a bit.|
Step 2: Repeatedly pound on the keyboard with your hands in the above position until you get a command line prompt. Make sure, when you pound, you press as many keys as possible at the same time.
