I am currently running runlevel 5, and I want to change it temporary to 3. I read some thing about init <number> but when I'll try to do it, I will get
Code
bash: init: command not found



So it seems that this command does not exist. How can I change it? Of course, I'm trying to run this command under root. Thanks

Don't know much about runlevel, but that init is run at boot time so you very probably have it.
Maybe you just miss /sbin in your $PATH.. so try:
Code
/sbin/init



instead of just
Code
init




Edit: i read a bit...if you want a console login you can try pressing ctrl+alt+num where num is a numer ranging from 1 to 6. On Gentoo you get tty, on Ubuntu too. Chances are that Fedora implements this too.

Yes, you're right, I've missed /sbin in my init command. Now I'm trying to write some nice shell script, only reason why I'm playing with runlevels is that I "hate" the Fedora login screen, where are all the usernames nice displayed. I don't want this because of I'm not the only one who is using the system. So I want from user to enter his login into console, then the Xorg will start. Anyway, thanks for your help.
