Question How do i stop xfree from loading on startup in RH Fedora?


How do i stop xfree from loading on startup in RH Fedora Core 1?. I used mandrake and suse before and they have a checkbox in xfree configuration if i want to load xfree on startup, but Fedora does not have anything like this. So how do i do it?

Not sure if this is what you are asking... As root, open and edit the file inittab located at /etc:

Code:
vim (or any other editor you use) /etc/inittab
You will see some lines which looks like this:

Code:
# Level to run in
id:5:initdefault:
This is for Mandrake. If you switch "5" to "3", next time you start your system, you will login in text-mode only. This number may slightly change regarding your distribution, so beware .
