flarefox Posted January 22, 2012 Report Share Posted January 22, 2012 I want to just have bash show up when I start my machine, but it's not working. I have tried changing the inittab from 5 to 3. I selected "I do not want to automatically start X on boot" when configuring the graphics/display drivers and boot options. I also tried adding on the boot option "text" (sans quotes). Every time, kdm loads by default. What's going on? Is there some new/other option I should know about? I'm trying to get it to boot, auto loginto a shell, and then load a few programs that run in the background of my server box since using the graphical interface is way more than I need on this system right now. I still want it for if I decide to do something, but I don't want to use it. Help? Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
