Closing X from RH9


Hi all,

Having a problem with closing the GUI in Redhat 9.0...

Everywhere i've been to, they tell me to press CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE, however, all this manages to do is put my computer into sleep mode.



If anyone can help me, I'd be very grateful...

Cheers,

Kuronai

Apparently, you are using some gui login manager rather than the console login.

As root, try the command

init 3

Its probably not called the GUI... just whatever the graphical display is that comes up when Redhat 9 starts.

The login screen, but not in command line mode... thats what im prattling on about. What i need to get to, is the command line with X closed.

Edit your /etc/inittab file and change the default run level to the number in the comments that correspond to "Full multiuser mode".
