Re: Video Argument for BootX
In the meantime I could use a way to tell Linux not to start X Windows
default. Is there something I can put into the Kernel Argument pane in
that will accomplish this?
Starting X Windows by default is not, to my knowledge, determined
by kernel arguments. Also, adding single to your arguments will start
the machine in single user mode, which is most likely not what you
want. It sounds to me like you have a line in your inittab that is
respawning the xdm process. Look in /etc/inittab for a line resembling:
Comment this line out.
(That line's from Redhat 6.2 i386, so it will likely be different in the
Debian files, but I don't seem to have the line in mine)
Hope that helps,
