Thread: What to do when system freezes out

  1. #1

    Default What to do when system freezes out

    Alright I have a issue, sometimes I have a total system freeze out and I know the old control+alt+backspace command is now disabled for some stupid reason in some distros.
    I need a solution to getting out of a frozen session without hitting my restart button, its stupid to have to hard restart every time the system messes up.

    You'll have to press CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE twice with recent openSUSE releases.

    Kind regards,

    And in case of total disaster, hold alt gr, print screen (sys rq), and then press;

    R E I S U B

    (easy to remember because it's busier backwards)
    Pressing each key for half a second or so, and leaving a couple of seconds between them. If the magic system request keys are enabled in the kernel (don't know if they are in SUSE? Obviously doesn't crash enough ), it should cleanly reboot.

    Thank you!

    I was just unsure how the keycombo worked in opensuse.
    I knew the old keycombo so well, but this recent trend of disabling ctrl+alt+backspace throws one off.
