Default new to ksh ... redirections do not work well ?

Here is a problem with ksh :
I tried to redirect the error standard output on the standard output, and the standard output on a file called foo.
cat nothing 2>&1 > foo
it doesn't redirect the error output. the error appears on the console, and foo contains nothing.
I have a problem with X, and I can't say don't show graphical things, just write out the errors right_here.

This will redirect stderr to where stdout goes at the point that 2>&1 is written. At that point it's still the terminal, not the file foo. stdout is only redirected to foo after this. So I think you want to reverse the two,

>foo 2>&1

(I don't use ksh on NetBSD, but this should be pretty generic behaviour.)

Exclamation

Thanks, but I notice that
X > /dev/null 2> ici
send errors to the file 'here', but doesn't redirect standard output to nothingness. It still occupies the current tty, which is problematic as it doesn't work and I don't know how to shut it put.

My understanding is that the forum rules require posts in English. Besides that, "je ne parles pas de Francais".

According to Chapter 9 of the NetBSD Guide, CTRL-ALT-Backspace (CTRL-ALT-Retour Arrière) can be used to signal X11 to quit.

It was a mistake, I accidentaly forgot to translate.
Ok for the CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE, but why the redirection doesn't work with X ? Do programs that open a new tty behave a bit differently with redirections? ?

X doesn't open a tty.

Perhaps what you are looking for are X errors, warnings, and information messages? If so, all of these should be captured in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for your review.
