Hello everyone,

In COS 5.2, one can turn off the graphic console by editing /etc/inittab and removing --autologin=clearconsole on tty1. inittab on COS6.2b3 is a very different file. Anyone has idea of how to disable gui on COS6?

    Yup, it should. Or Amazon EC2 images (to be made publicly available soon) don't need the graphical console, so those images are shipped without it.

    I would like to do this for 6.3 (gconsole is using a lot of ram). Does this still work?

    Hi,
    Just tried the yum remove but my system could not find any of the package installed.
    When i boot, I have a black screnn with clearos logo and that is it.

    Tried the ALT +Fx but nothing change.

    I notice this post was for beta release, Is this still valid for 6.2 ?

    Thanks

    yum remove gconsole app-graphical-console

    In case anyone else stumbles across this, the above works well for me too and leaves you with the old text based console :)

    Tony is on the right track, the /etc/init/clearos-console.conf is where this should be done. This file is part of the clearos-console RPM and, unfortunately, the file is not "marked" as a configuration file. This means that any changes to the file will be stomped on when the clearos-console package is upgraded. That's a one line change that we'll fix before final release:

    Note: deleting or moving the file won't work in the long term. If clearos-console is upgraded and sees a missing configuration file, I'm pretty sure it will plop down a new one. Editing the file is probably the better (or blanking it out?).
