rawhide 20050517, x86_64.

ctrl-alt-del is just ignored. Could have sworn it used to trigger a reboot.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-19 12:45:37 EDT
In fact, it did.  

For some reason, getpid() in init is returning 5 which is the pid of a khelper
thread, not init itself.  

Dave -- know of any kernel oddities that could be in play here?
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-19 12:51:03 EDT
Okay, not the kernel's fault.  Booting a U1-ish kernel with my initrd shows the
same problem.  Swapping to the U1 initrd with the current kernel works fine.

Summary says it all now :)
