More info please. How are you starting X in the first place? startx/kdm/xdm/gdm ....?

As a side note, please dont post the same question with different titles (within a short time). It is quite irritating. I am talking about this thread and viewtopic.php?t=3004

If you are using startx, then simply logging out of the desktop environment should do. For example, if you are using KDE, just click on big K button -> Log out. After this, you should be at the command line prompt where you entered startx.

If you return to text mode console login screen asking you to enter login and password then you have shutdown X. However this is not equivalent to shutting down the system completely. To shutdown the system completely, you need to run

shutdown -h now

Depending on your configuration this might or might not require root privileges.

When in GUI, open a terminal, login as root, and change directory:
cd /etc/rc2.d

in rc2.d you will find a file S99gdm, which we shall rename as _S99gdm;
mv S99gdm _S99gdm

Now restart and login. To GUI, run "startx."

If you want to restore gdm (Gnome Display Manager,) rename _S99gdm back to S99gdm.

Also, now, when in GUI, if you click logout, you will go back to terminal.
Or, instead of click, use: Ctrl,Alt,Backspace keys.

Also, you need to know how to shutdown terminal CORRECTLY.
First, you need to be root.
Shutdown commands:

shutdown -h now (fast)
poweroff -f (very fast)

If you go to type poweroff, just type pow and hit tab key, linux will fill in the rest of the word because poweroff is the only command on the system which starts with those three letters.

pow (Tab) -f


shu (Tab) -f !


I think this is called intelligent software!!

And think about editing .bashrc (one in root, and one in /home/user I think,) to colorize terminal.
