How to close Xserver, but keep kppp running


kppp has a check box where it says something like "Do not disconnect when exiting X"
I've checked this and it doesn't work. I still get disconnected when killing the X server

The reason I need to close X is because X must be restarted to change the resolution. My desktop runs at 1600 x 1200 by my ancient Voodoo 3 won't run 3d apps at that desktop resolution.

Any ideas? Perhaps a text config file I can mess around with? I welcome any useful ideas.

I haven't used kppp or any dial up for so long but why not use wvdial or something like that, that doesn't even require X to run, unlike kppp.
