hi all,i have a live flash media server running on centos 5 64bit in a distant datacenter thats in runlevel 5. my question is if i ran telinit 3 to change from the current runlevel of 5... [by bashir_centos]
I was trying to debug my linux boot process. If I set default runlevel to 2 or 3 my system hangs without giving me prompt. So I was able to get to runlevel 1 via kernel parameter. and ran all scripts in rc2.d via service ***** start/stop commands and it was fine. But if I do a telinit to runlevel 2 or 3. I cant see my shell prompt. So what is the diff between to approaches ?
I would like to see messages of each init-script when changing runlevel (i.e. from runlevel 5 to runlevel 4). This would give me certainty, if services would really be started/stopped. No preference, if shown in startup/shutdown-style (with [OK] at the end of the line) or plain output of a manually called init-script (/etc/init.d/...).
I've got a new F18 install that's booting into runlevel 5 to run KDE. I'd like to have the system boot to runlevel 3 by default, so that all users have to perform console logons, and then issue the startx command to enter the gui.
I currently try to harden the system and the security of a Debian server running a database and a source code management. I just want networking and me (one user) to be able to login. Which runlevel is best for this?
I found out that my current runlevel is 2, but maybe 1 or 3 would be better. If so, how can I achieve this?
I recently switched my server runlevel to 3 and I don't notice any updating of any kind going on, does the updater run in runlevel 3? If it is possible, how do I do it? Is it a service that I need to start? If so, how?
