    stop X at boot-up time


    hello,

    pls, how do I stop X (i mean the GUI) on Fedora Core 4 from booting up as a default whenever i boot up my FC4.

    I would want to have the option of either starting X or logging in in the normal console window.....(like a dos screen)

    cheers

    Change your run level from level 5 to level 3 on startup.

    Look at the file /etc/inittab

    Look for the line that looks like this:
    Code:
    id&#58;5&#58;initdefault
    Change that 5 to a 3
