RE: Can anyone explain the use of init3



When I try to drop from runlevel 5 to 3 in FC5 by doing a 'sudo init 3', the
X server quits but the init process gets stuck after the following:

INIT: Switching to runlevel: 3
INIT: Sending all processes the TERM signal
Starting readahead_early: Starting background readahead:	[ OK ]
	
[ OK ]
Starting irqbalance:							[ OK
]

Is there any way to drop to runlevel 3 without rebooting?

Cheers,

Chris L-F

This is to use runlevel 3. There are five main runlevels used:
Runlevel 0: Shuts down. Not very useful to boot into.
Runlevel 1: Single-user mode, you are automatically root user (hence why 
if someone has physical access to a computer and can edit the boot 
arguments, they can change the root password)
Runlevel 3: Text multi-user mode
Runlevel 5: Graphical multi-user mode; default, and most people use this.
Runlevel 6: Restarts. Again, not very useful to boot into.
