Thread: Lilo boot screen

  1. #1

    Lilo boot screen

    I've recently installed Redhat 7.3 and I used lilo as the boot loader. Lilo starts in Graphical mode every time, how can I set it to start in text mode every time???

    in /etc/lilo.conf comment out the line message=message or something like that...

    You can also change that line to point to your own custom message file. Just be sure you place it in the /boot directory.

    Not sure if everyone got your question right, but I believe you want to change the runlevel on boot. *To do this go to Programs>System>Service Configuration>Edit Runlevel

    Set this to three and on next boot you will be on the prompt. *Hope that helped
