kde programs


Hi, it looks like i have a ton of KDE programs running when i do a ps -A

I would like it to not start when the machine boots up. I already looked into the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ to find them. no luck. where do i look?

thanks.

To stop XWindows (and KDE) from starting on boot edit the /etc/inittab file and change
Code:
id:5:initdefault:
to
Code:
id:3:initdefault:
This starts your machine in runlevel 3 (everything except for X Windows). You can change the runlevel without rebooting the machine if you want by pressing ctrl+alt+f1 to get to a console login, logging in as root and doing:
Code:
telinit 3 #Stop X-Windows
or
Code:
telinit 5 #Start X-Windows again
