CTRL-ALT-F1 - Loading initial ramdisk


When I hit CTRL-ALT-F1 instead of showing tty1 it just shows Loading initial ramdisk... with no prompt. CTRL-ALT-F2 is the GUI so only CTRL-ALT-F3 to F6 show tty3 to 6. CTRL-ALT-F7 dosent do anything. Seems a little odd to me, and as im fairly new to linux I was wondering if anyone knows why it would be doing this?

Interesting. My X Server is running on F1

Which version of Fedora did you install?

ps aux | grep getty
The year is 2012 now. How many text terminals do you need?
