"systemctl start/stop" versus "systemctl isolate" Re: [opensuse] systemctl stop

"systemctl start" starts a target or service

"systemctl stop" stops a target or service

"systemctl isolate" only works with targets that CAN be isolated, i.e.
that are something akin to a runlevel. The four major ones,, and
are such targets, and therefor should be reached by isolating them, not
just starting them.

What "isolate" does is comparable to switching runlevels. It checks the
dependecies of the given target, and STOPS everything that is not needed
anymore, and STARTS everything that is needed but not running.

Hope that helps a bit.

If I can start X with:

systemctl start

should I not also be able to stop it again with:

systemctl stop ?

I have found this leaves the system unusable with no virtual console or
graphical interface, so I have to reboot.
