Interesting question about "init 4" and x.org crashing
Hey guys, I just installed slackware on a new box. Everything went fine. I upgraded the kernel installed a few extra packages... then i decide to do an "init 4" to run x.org. It crashes of course because I forgot to configure my xorg.conf file.
I know how to edit my xorg.conf file and make it work... I just wanted to know if there was a way to get back to runlevel 3 without rebooting. I find it annoting that i had to reboot to fix the problem.
I know that if i do "startx" instead of "init 4" i can just type "ctrl + alt + backspace" to get back. But this is not the solution to my problem.
