#3669 closed bug (invalid)

If KDL is disabled, disable F12 key

Reported by: RandomInsano Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1

Description

If the user edits /boot/home/settings/kernel/drivers/kernel to disable the KDL, either show the kernel debug land or do nothing. Currently it just locks up the system and doesn't give a way to get back to the desktop.

F12 is only a temporary solution that won't make it to the release (it'll be a much more complicated key shortcut, or maybe even a setting).

And turning off on screen debugging doesn't turn off KDL, it only turns off on screen debugging. You can still debug the system via serial line.

The kernel debugger is nothing a normal user is supposed to see ever. Well, at least in theory. And if you do, you can accept that it is lethal :-)
