If I have an application that wedges the GUI, what can I do to force quit it? Barring that is there a way to jump to a terminal prompt so I can manually quit it?

1) Click the cancel button?
2) Try to telnet into your machine if it is on the network and kill the app?
3) Click the BRS?

If you are running Cacko QT 1.21 and can still manage to get to the 'Settings' tab, tap on 'System Info', then the 'Process' tab, find the app name in the list in the 'Command' column, select from the drop down menu underneath '9:SIGKILL' and tap 'Send'.

BRS = Big Red Switch ;>

Heh, ok thanks guys, but I'm talking situations where the GUI is totally hosified (and I'm not networked with my Z). I was wondering if there was some kinda Vulcan death pinch. Heck even a restart combo would be nice as the BRS is software controlled and I've gotten it quite a few times into a state where I have to pull the battery before restarting...

I just pull the battery if it's a real bad crash.
