Ctrl+Alt+Delete your own way

By | November 26, 2008

Do you by any chance wish to modify the behavior of Ctrl+Alt+Delete? Change the following line in /etc/inittab:

ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now

Comment it out with # to disable Ctrl+Alt+Del altogether or replace the /sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now part with a command of your choice. This way you can first unmount NAS shares before rebooting forcefully or use the halt command instead of -t1 -a -r now.
