Uninstall X

Hello Forum,

I have installed SuSE 10 with a GUI. Now that i am more confident on the command line I would like to uninstall all trace of the desktop.

I have GNOME installed - how would I go about getting rid of the lot?

YaST2/yum... yum is not setup properly at the moment.

Thanks very much,

I'm not familiar with YaST2/yum, but you could edit /etc/inittab and set your default runlevel to 3. That way after your run telinit 3 or re-boot the PC you won't see the GUI unless you run startx (or change the default runlevel again.
