change graphical login in Gnome


Hello,
What is the method to change the default graphical login in Gnome to Text login, to start in command line mode?

Regards
Nhasbek

Look in /etc/inittab for something like this:
Code:
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
#   0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#   1 - Single user mode
#   2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
#   3 - Full multiuser mode
#   4 - unused
#   5 - X11
#   6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:5:initdefault:
Change the line id:5:initdefault: to id:3:initdefault: and you should get your text-mode login on bootup. To change logins immediately use the init command. For example init 3 will go to text mode and init 5 will go to graphical login mode. init 0 will shutdown the system while init 6 will reboot the system.

EDIT: Oh, and I forgot to mention, you have to do this as root.
