I am looking for more ways to use the terminal, and i just needed to see what's happening with Gnome/X or possibly fix ti, when it hangs og crashes.

It is when it slows really down in Gnome you can press ctrl+altl+F1 and go in to a terminal. It is here I like to do some smart things, but I have to look/fix things in the other terminal (ctrl+alt+F6).

Any ideas?
