I am using my Linux as a server, so I decide to stripe off GNOME,
I cannot do it graphically using add/remove appailcations, since
the load is already too heavy; when I did: rpm -e gdm.*.*, I got
a symbolic error, and the remving process hangs?
I am wondering if there is a way on
1. Completely remove gdm package
2. Do not invoke GNOME when the system boots? (keep in the
command shell mode)
or just take out or rename with a begining "_"
the Sxxgdm link in the runlevel folder you are currently using. xx is the start order number
ckeck /etc/inittab for default run level
/etc/rc.d/init.d/rcx.d where x is your run level
Per your suggestion, I made my own start/stop/restart script for my application,
however, my application requires to be executed in non-root user mode, how can I switch
to my_user_name mode, put su my_user_name in the script, seems does not work;
also my application has an option, shall I put it in $prog or invoke $prog with -option
