I am using Redhat ES and i have selected 3 as my default runlevl (it boots in text mode). But if i start GUI by typing "startx" in the comand prompt how do i go back to text mode (aka run level 3). I have typed init 3 or telinit 3 at the terminal as a root but nothing happens (no error message nothing it just returns #). Right now the only way i can go back to text mode is by killing X (by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) but is there any other way? any help will be appreciated.
here is the copy of the /etc/inittab file:
# System initialization.
# Trap CTRL-ALT-DELETE
ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r now
# When our UPS tells us power has failed, assume we have a few minutes
# of power left. Schedule a shutdown for 2 minutes from now.
# This does, of course, assume you have powerd installed and your
# UPS connected and working correctly.
owerfail:/sbin/shutdown -f -h +2 "Power Failure; System Shutting Down"
# If power was restored before the shutdown kicked in, cancel it.
owerokwait:/sbin/shutdown -c "Power Restored; Shutdown Cancelled"
# Run gettys in standard runlevels
# Run xdm in runlevel 5
