What command to shutdown XFree86 in Redhat 8?
I'm trying to troubleshoot my XFree86 config on a Redhat 8 box, trying my best to achieve 1024x768 @ 85Hz on an Intel i810 integrated chipset.
What I'd like to do is shutdown X, make a change to the XF86Config file in a text shell, then start X back up. Unfortunately I'm a newbie and don't know the tricks, and the basic Ctrl-Alt-Backback keystroke simply restarts X rather than shutting it down. I need a true shutdown of X since my video problems are distorting the screen...I need the video card to revert back into whatever mode it uses during run level 3.
The fanciest thing I've tried is getting the PID of the X process and killing it, but that resulted in a system lockup. Just need the command which shuts down X gracefully.
