Xwindow > terminal

Post by mtijhuis » 2005/03/19 00:06:49

Hello everyone,

I have just installed CentOS 4.0.
I restarted and the server will show the KDE desktop.
The KDE is only for administration of the server.
But i wan't that the server start the terminal automaticaly
without the graphics.

I have hear about that you must change it in the boot, but what?

Very thnx.

Greats from the netherlands.

Hi,

change in
/etc/inittab

the line
id:5:initdefault:

to
id:3:initdefault:

so it boots to runlevel 3 not runlevel 5.
