Angry Console mode is DIED


I'm using a Redhat7.2 version, before now I used the MDK8.0 version, ------->Redhat version doesn't allow me to use the Console mode, why? When I was using MDK there was the possibility to choice between Reboot, Shutdown and Console mode. With Redhat third way doesn't exist. Could you help me?

u can access your console by using something like xterm, rxvt etc etc.

what i suspect is that you have set your machine to boot up to X windows automatically.

if you want an option to go into the console, become the superuser, edit the /etc/inittab file.
look for the line id:5:initdefault and change it to id:3:initdefault.
then reboot your computer.
you should be abble to boot up into the console mode. if you want to go into X windows (ie. kde or gnome or some other) just type startx at the command prompt

switching between X and console mode

you should also be able to hit "ctrl alt FN" (where FN is function key F1 through F6) to switch from X to one of the consoles. when in console mode "alt FN" will switch to console "N" and "alt F7" will take you back to X.
