Ubuntu and other Debian descendants do not make any real distinction between different runlevels.
Could you elaborate a little for me. It is true that run levels 1-5 all have the same default programs that start and it's up to the admin to change them.
cybersam45 Hi, my first post.................
Cannot seem to find /etc/inittab under ubuntu 8.10.
Welcome to LQ
I'm not sure about Ubuntu but it should still be in /etc/inittab when you cd into /etc/ do a ls inittab
or ls | grep inittab and it should come up.
