Re: Booting F9 with NO X11



If you prefer to have the system boot without X11, then you might want to edit the /etc/inittab file so that the default runlevel is 3.  Here's what the last line of the stock /etc/inittab file on Fedora Core 9 might look like:

id:3:initdefault:

I believe the default is to boot in runlevel 5.  For machines without monitors or those without a working X11 setup, runlevel 3 works great.

Once you're able to boot in runlevel 3 successfully, you should be able to configure X11 by running 'setup' and then selecting 'X configuration'.

I hope this helps,
