[Grml] Second question

One of the coolest things about grml is the runlevel.conf file -

if you go to /etc/runlevel.conf

and where it says  something like 

21	-	2,3,4,5		/etc/init.d/gdm

just change that to 

21(or whatever the number is) -    -   /etc/init.d/gdm

Then you will have to log in as root, and issue the command "gdm" or
startx to get into x.

As a matter of practical advice, I tend to do all system work outside of
x, as it is normally faster.

Now, if you only want to do this once, and continue to boot into x
automatically, then let the machine boot, ctl-alt-F2 into a console,
login as root, issue "killall grm" and you will have a console, to
regain x, just issue "gdm".
