If Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesn't work then this is probably an X issue.

I'm going to reassign it.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-26 22:24:53 UTC
Attach your X server log file and config file, and /var/log/messages
as individual uncompressed file attachments using the link below.

Also include the output of "lsmod"

The freeze occured on Apr 26 between 16:01:01 and 16:34:59

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-28 23:38:29 UTC
None of the file attachments are viewable in firefox.  Did you choose the
wrong mimetype perhaps?  They should all be attached as individual
uncompressed file attachments of type "text/plain", so that they're
viewable in the web browser.

Please fix and we'll have a look.
