Starting linux in console mode in init level 5
My application works in console mode(CUI). However, I also need the
GUI because my application launches the web browser on receiving a event.
After viewing the web browser, the user then again switch to the console mode
To satisfy this need ,I require my application to boot in console mode but
with GUI also loaded .Is there any way , so that my application starts in
console mode and when I press <Alt> + <Ctrl> + F7 , it switches to GUI mode
.Please note that I donot want to use startx after making default init level 3,because I need the X server to get loaded at the boot time itself.
The crux of the whole scenario is that I want my application to boot in initlevel 5 and in console mode.Or it should switch to the console mode itself after first logging into GUI mode.
waiting for a timely response!

Why not just use ctrl-alt-F1 to get to the console?"I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

You probably just need to boot into to a GUI (runlevel 5), login and let your program run from an xterm.
