another more elegant solution to stopping X?
Could you do a network login, or does the machine really freezes hard?
It's frozen solid :-) I can't get to it over the network
I can't get to a prompt so
editing various files is not an option unless someone has some magic
incantations I can mumble.
Boot into single user mode. From the kernel-parameters.txt documentation:
S [KNL] run init in single mode.
Forgive my ignorance here, so all I have to do is enter something like:
b -fl S
at the SRM prompt and I should be set. Wow... if that works, that is
much too easy! :-)
