Init run level 1
 
When ever I tell the system to go to Run level 1, it just gives me a black screen. How do i get a console ?

Init run level 1 is to restart the computer I'm pretty sure, you should try run level 3 to get a console

In Fedora 4 runlevel 1 is single user, while runlevel6 is reboot.

What happens when you enter "linux 1" at the grub prompt?
What runlevel are you in when you attempt "init 1"?

init 1 is Single User mode, you supposed to be able to login as root automatically in single user mode (obviously)

init 0 = shutdown/poweroff/halt
init 6 = reboot

linux 1? you just have to add a "1" at the end, and you will be automatically logged in as root user (single user mode) and receive a bash shell. Useful when you forgot your root password.

This happened in gnome with just an open term. as root i entered init 1 the computer screen goes blank and it just sets there as for entering it at the grub prompt have not tried that yet ill get back with you on that here in a few minutes.

hmm weird, I'm using gnome on a RHEL5 and i got a bash shell = sh-3.1# after it closed all the current services that was running in run level 5 and I went to single user mode. Well changing run levels is similar to restarting the computer, all services are stopped and restarted depending on what has been set using chkconfig.
