Bypass Aqua System
If you login with the username >console with no password you will bypass the Aqua interface and be presented with a text login screen. I came across this hint at daemonnews.org. I hadn't seen it here and so I thought I would share the info.

[Editor's note: Simply typing logout will return you to the GUI login screen.]

Keyborad mapping
Authored by: yorran on Jun 03, '01 05:05:18AM

It works well, and can be helpful for special installations (like XFree), but still remains the problem of the keyborard mapping : I work on a french version of X, and each time I log as >console, my keymapping truns to american keyboard.
Any solution for this ?
