booting linux without x windows starting


Is there a way to boot Linux (Ubuntu 5.10) without x (graphics) starting? Maybe there is a key to hold down or a config file that will do it.

On a different thread, it was discovered that you could add "INIT 3" to the boot commands to make the system boot into runlevel 3 (full multiuser network environment without XWindows). You could also add this to your bootloader (lilo or grub), to make it an available option.

If you want a permanent solution, edit /etc/inittab, and thange the following line:

id:5:initdefault:

Change to:

id:3:initdefault:
