I guess ( after reading Bob's reply) I forgot to mention, NORMALLY you
do those from the ATL-F1 text login screen, where you login as ROOT...
NOT from the X_windows ( gnome, kde...)
my usual init commands are:
# init 6 ( thats just a reboot)
# init 0 ( turn the sucker OFF)
# init 1 ( bring me down to single user mode!)
# init 2 ( start the X-windows & all the rest of the normal services)
I used to use init S/s back in the UNIX days, and it used to mean
something, probably not the same anymore.. It used to bring it down to
single user & umount all file systems EXCEPT root.. but I see from the
man init :
-s, S, single
Single user mode boot. In this mode /etc/inittab is
examined and the bootup rc scripts are usually run before the single
user mode shell is started.
now they have "-b"
Boot directly into a single user shell without running any
other startup scripts.
so, there are still multiple ways to get booted, even in single user mode..
