Re: Enable/Disable GUI on bootup

Hi Tim, Go into /etc/inittab, and change the initdefault line so that the middle field is a 3, instead of a 5. Then re boot, and use the command 'startx' when you want to use the GUI. I hope that answers your question,

also, booting into runlevel 3 then doing "startx" is not the same as booting into runlevel 5: other services that are only configured to run in runlevel 5 don't start that way.

if you need to boot to runlevel 3, then switch to runlevel 5, do "telinit 5" from the runlevel 3 command prompt.

man telinit
