RedHat 9 SIngle-User Mode
I am using RedHat 9, GRUB boot loader.
I have two questions.
First question. I would like to know how one can boot to single-user mode. I know that I can use "init 1", or "telinit 1" to transfer to single-user mode. Is this the only way? When I was using Solaris I used something like "reboot -- -s" to reboot to single user mode. I have read the man page but could not find any way to reboot to single-user mode. Is there any way to interact with GRUB to boot to single-user mode?
Second question. When I log in GNOME as a normal user, I can still shutdown the system or reboot the system using the menu in the GNOME X-window interface. To prevent this I change the permission of shutdown, halt commands in /sbin. Now I cannot shutdown the system if I am logon as a normal user. But I still can shutdown the system from the logon window using the menu given below on the logon window. Isn't this a security problem?
