Re: [SLE] want a text login
Hi

Start yast, go to system administration, select login configuration, and
select ascii.

On next boot You will have runlevel 3, that is pure ascii-login. Graphical
login is runlevel 5.

You can change the runlevel "on-the-fly" by issuing command "init 3" or "init
5"

Jaska.
