Dropping to command line

Subject: Dropping to command line

When you boot up the sco box you end up with a gui login. Is there a hotkey to drop that down to the command line login? I need access to the command line on virtual console 2 as a different user, but it can only login on 2 via command line login


Got something to add? Send me email.

Same as it is in Linux: CTRL-ALT-Function-Key. On SCO, the gui is at F2 by default. Read (link) also

But reading that again, I really have no idea what you are really asking.. what you wrote is a bit confusing.. please clarify what you really mean.
