Question RH8 Grapic Login change


I missed the box to disable graphic login when I installed Redhat 8. I've looked for a way to do it after the installl but I can't find it.

Can anyone tell me how to disable graphic login for Redhat 8 so that it starts at a command line and I have to start x with 'startx"??????

Try this: Become root and edit /etc/inittab

Look for a line like:

id:5:initdefault:

and change that '5' to a '3'

id:3:initdefault:

Save the file and reboot. See if that works.

Cheers--
