Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


If you are on a SPARCTM system, do the following:

  1. Find another machine and remote log in to this system

  2. Run the following command:

    $ /usr/openwin/bin/kbd_mode -a

This puts the console back into ASCII mode.

Note -

kbd_mode is not a windows program; it fixes the console mode.

If you are on an IA system, do the following:

  1. Log in remotely and start

  2. kill the X server or reboot the system
