Open a terminal


Type in your root password

/sbin/init 3

X will shut down and you'll end up at a text mode login screen. To start X back up again, you do (amazingly enough) a startx.

X will also start up next time you reboot, which can be done with an init 6 as root.

If you get "init: command not found", then use /sbin/init instead of just plain init.
