again, the same thing is that the page:
says something wrong, becoz the line:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
doesn't exist in the /etc/inittab. For a single home PC (not the server) and
for personal use, if someone wants to disable the Control-Alt-Delete Option,
it is said to comment the above line, but FC11 /etc/inittab is like:
# inittab is only used by upstart for the default runlevel.
# ADDING OTHER CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.
# System initialization is started by /etc/event.d/rcS
# Individual runlevels are started by /etc/event.d/rc[0-6]
# Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /etc/event.d/control-alt-delete
# Terminal gettys (tty[1-6]) are handled by /etc/event.d/tty[1-6] and
# For information on how to write upstart event handlers, or how
# upstart works, see init(8), initctl(8), and events(5).
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
Now, /etc/event.d/control-alt-delete is like:
# control-alt-delete - emergency keypress handling
# This task is run whenever the Control-Alt-Delete key combination is
# pressed. Usually used to shut down the machine.
start on control-alt-delete
exec /sbin/shutdown -r now "Control-Alt-Delete pressed"
I tried commmenting the last two lines, that is:
# start on control-alt-delete
# exec /sbin/shutdown -r now "Control-Alt-Delete pressed"
But still, Control-Alt-Delete doesn't seem to be closed.
There are no other users who are using the PC, but is there any way to stop
the PC rebooting via Control-Alt-Delete in the console mode? For a single
FC11 desktop. Something is lacking...
