[BUG] virtual terminal and kernel panic
Ubuntu 8.10, 32-bits.
First, switch to a text console, e.g. console_4,
with <ctrl><alt><f4>. Login as root.
Then use loadkeys and assign SAK to some key,
Finally, press SAK. Result:
- attempt to kill init
- kernel panic
Can somebody try this on his own hardware?
Thanks a lot.
