Well, I think I've got my X stuff figured out. At least, for the
time being. I had forgotten about the ctrl+alt+keypad +/- for switching
between display modes, and after reading through some X man pages I was
reminded of it. I had finally gotten a stable server running, it was
just that the default display was set to 1024x768 with a display size of
?640x480? Anyway, that problem is overted for the time being.
Now, the question at hand. Is there a way to switch from one run
level to the other without doing a system reboot and entering -s at the
boot prompt? (Side note, yes, I'm running on the i386 architecture.)
I've been reading through the halt(8), reboot(8), boot_i386(8) man
pages but I'm not really finding what I want, and I've tried doing
things like 'init <run level>' but all I get is init is already running.
Evidently, that type of init switching is only supported on SVRxx type
systems? I hope I've worded that correctly. Anyway, I'm just
wondering. This type of functionality has been rather valuable to me
lately while troubleshooting Linux systems and I was wondering if such
functionality was supported in OpenBSD.
Thanks for the help with X too by the way.
