2.10. Changing Runlevels at Boot Time

Under Red Hat Linux, it is possible to change the default runlevel at boot time.

If using LILO, access the boot: prompt by typing [Ctrl]-[X]. Then type:

linux <runlevel-number>

In this command, replace <runlevel-number> with either the number of the runlevel to boot into (1 through 5), or the words single or emergency.

If using GRUB, follow these steps:

  • In the graphical GRUB boot loader screen, select the Red Hat Linux boot label and press [e] to edit it.

  • Arrow down to the kernel line and press [e] to edit it.

  • At the prompt, type the number of the runlevel you wish to boot into (1 through 5), or the words single or emergency and press [Enter].

  • You will be returned to the GRUB screen with the kernel information. Press the [b] key to boot the system.

For more information about runlevels, see Section 1.4.1 Runlevels.
