While opening an icon file (.xpm) that I just saved, my pc crashed & restarted until it got to where the x server starts. It keeps trying to start but fails, over & over. How can I boot to a command line (runlevel 2) before the x server starts so I can remove the offending file. I'am using Linux-Mandrake 6.1 with KDE. Thanks in advance
After a few failed starts the system will wait for 5 min, if you press CRTL+ALT+F1 you can go to console mode, edit the file /etc/inittab, change the init level from 5 to 3 and after reboot your system
