How to have prevent X server to...


Hello, I was trying to tune up PC-BSD XF86config file but I did a mistake. Now when X server starts I have a grey screen. What I have to type so that X will automatically starts at boot, so that I can have a console login which is going to allow me to change the file?

Thanks

want console login then edit /etc/inittab fileand edit the following line

id:3:initdefault:

here
1=>single user login (for administrative purposes)
3=>console login
5=>graphical login

OR

if you have grub installed then select the 'linux' title and edit the 'kernel' line to append a '1' at the end. then press [ESC] and press 'b' to boot the system.
the line u have to edit may look something like this..(after editing)
Code:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11.12 root=/dev/hda11 1

I assume that by appending 1 I am going to have single user login, correct?

Thank You.

It worked!!! thank You.

Unfortunaly It looks like XFree doesn't offer the same capability like Xorg. I am having problem running my screen at 1400x1050 85mhz 24bit. I am able to reach this with RedHat and PCLOS. But BSD...
