Changing Boot From Graphic to Text


I have Red Hat 9.0. I am trying to figure out how to change the default boot promt from graphical to text. Does anyone know how? And if so, would they mind letting me know?

Thanks.

Edit your /etc/inittab and change default run level to 3.

not sure ... if u login through text and then do "init 5" .. then it should start up all those services in run level 5 .. but if you dont go into graphical .. i think some services may not be running .. not sure though.

Actually it's pretty easy to see what is supposed to start and stop at each run level:

/sbin/chkconfig --list

You can also look around in /etc/rc.d and see what gets started and stopped at each run level (the directories rc0.d-rc6.d contain links to start and stop scripts kept in /etc/init.d).

These directories are linked all around and you'll see rcX.d in /etc/ and also in /etc/rc.d/ but not to worry - they contain the same things because they basically are the same (that link thing).

Oh - mpgram - I think that generally switching between run level 3 and run level 5 won't start or stop anything but X. When I do the /sbin/chkconfig --list command, everything is the same between run levels 3 and 5 except a vmware daemon - but that is a program that provides a way to run Windows in a virtual machine and is not part of the standard RH Linux distribution.

If it wasn't for vmware, mine would be identical.
