 Xorg 6.8.(2|99) - Yet another swicth to set to be able to switch to console
Author: parv

Today i found while running either of Xorg 6.8.2 or 6.8.99.903 servers that i needed to set "XkbDisable" to "true" in some PARTICULAR ORDER ...

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "DontZap" "false"
Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"

# XFree86 4.[34].x - Add "DontVTSwitch" to be false.
Option "DontVTSwitch" "false"

Option "HandleSpecialKeys" "Always"

# Xorg 6.8.(2|99.903) - Add "XkbDisable" to be true.
Option "XkbDisable" "true"
EndSection

...to be able to switch to a console via "Ctrl-Alt-F(1..12)" key sequence. I emphasized the order of the "Options" earlier beacause i could not switch to console for some unknown orders of "XkbDisable", "HandleSpecailKeys", "DontVTSwitch" (and "*Time" and a few more miscellaneous options).
