my inittab reads like this:

# The default runlevel.

i thought with this, i will get a text login. but i always end-up in gdm!!

how do i stop this? i will like to have text login prompt.

One of the last scripts in /etc/rc2.d will be something like S99gdm. You can:

* apt-get remove gdm

* add "exit 0" as the first executable line of S99gdm

* rename S99gdm to something like NoS99gmd

tried this - worked perfectly!

* delete S99gmd (it's a symlink to /etc/init.d/gdm)


* rename/delete the actual script (/etc/init.d/gdm)

thanx a lot
