      I have the same problem with APM and
      a Dell Latitude CPi A400XT, and if I
      use CTRL-ALT-F1 from the run level 5
      (from Redhat6, with KDE), I get a
      console terminal but I can not enter
      commands from this ... and I can
      not restart after a sequence FN-Esc.

      Is there another solution to switch
      properly to a console terminal ?
