It's part of the options line passed to grub in /boot/grub/grub.conf -- title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl) root (hd0,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img ^^^^ If you want to boot to the console, removing rhgb won't accomplish that; you'll still wind up booting to X. To boot to the console, you want to boot in text mode, which means editing /etc/inittab # Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are: # 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this) # 1 - Single user mode # 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking) # 3 - Full multiuser mode # 4 - unused # 5 - X11 # 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this) # id:3:initdefault: ^ If you're booting to X, that 3 will be a five; change it to 3 and you should boot to the console, whether or not rhgb is on the grub options line. -- [email protected] | Uton we hycgan hwaer we ham agen, | ond thonne gedhencan he we thider cumen. | -- The Seafarer, ll. 117-118.
