Is there a way to boot the machine to run level 3 only (no kdm etc.),
in Mandrake I used to use (in /etc/inittab)
at top and it does not work the same way..
The problem is that the runlevels 2,3,4 and 5 are identical by default.
To make this work, you need to remove the symlink to the kdm script
from some runlevel directory. To have runlevel 3 without kdm, do this:
After that, booting into runlevel 3 will not load XFree (if you use kdm
as your login manager).
update-rc.d kdm remove
try the manpage for the same for more options.
