[bug=][/bug]A mistake occurred in my xorg.conf , now in the gnome my keyboard can't work, I can't log
in and do anything.

dunno if appending "init=/bin/sh" to the command line would work

but yeah, have you tried ALT+SysRq+K in order to kill X?

What about CTRL+ALT+F1?

Other than that, if you happen to have:

Code:

RC_INTERACTIVE="yes"


in /etc/conf.d/rc, then you should be given the option to press "I" during the init process and interactively decide which services to start or not start; if indeed you have this ability, obviously, avoid starting whatever would normally log you into X
