The X-Server is the GUI you are in. Do you type "startx" when you first login, or does it automatically start up the windowing system?

Thats why I told you to

telinit 3

 

That tells the init system in the kernel to goto level 3 (full Linux support, but no X server)

hmmm. Are you sure your root?

i.e.

user@host#> su
Enter password:
root@host#> telinit 3

Log out, and when you get to the login screen, try CTRL+ALT+F1

 

EDIT: Try F1 to F6. If that doesnt work, you might have to edit inittab (located in /etc/inittab, BE VERY CAREFUL).

 

you should see the line similar to below

 

BLAHBLAH:5:defaultrunlevel

 

Change that '5' to 3. Then save and exit. Reboot your machine and continue where you left of previously.

Ok, i still dont know RedHat, but try this:

 

log on as usual, until you see the desktop.

 

Open a console or shell or however its called that you can type commands at the command line.

 

Type "su". You should be asked then for the root password.

 

Then type "init 3". That should shut down the X-server and bring you to a command line.

No this probably won't work, because he's still using the environment of the user he logged in initially. To get this command working you need to use

user@workstation home $ su -

that is put a - (minus sign) after the command, which will also re-initialize the environment to be roots one, thus adding /sbin, /usr/sbin to the path, so the shell is able to find telinit or init.
