From what I have read, the primary issue is with starting x and I should be able to do command line by using the ctrl+c command above. Any ideas why I am unable to login?
I also saw in other threads that I should be able to force the boot to skip x altogether and boot directly to command line. However, as a newbie, I was having trouble following. Can you point me to a good description of how to do this?
I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and would appreciate any help you can offer! Thanks!
