Changing Linux to Text Console Login

Log in to the PC as root.
Edit /etc/inittab
Change the 5 in the line:


to 3.

The id:5 denotes the runlevel that Linux will boot up into. Runlevel 5 is the graphical login mode. This means that when Linux starts it will go directly into X11. The initdefault stands for the default runlevel. Change this runlevel to 3 for multiuser mode console login.
