booting os/x server to command line - no gui? - Mac Applications & Software

Hello, Is it possible to boot the os/x server into command line mode, multiuser with no gui? I manage the server from remote and have no need for the resources to be used running the GUI. I would much prefer to have the speed and the memory available for server functions. This is on an OS/X 10.2.6 machine. Thanks for any helpful replies. -Chris...

    Default booting os/x server to command line - no gui?

    Hello,

    Is it possible to boot the os/x server into command line mode, multiuser
    with no gui? I manage the server from remote and have no need for the
    resources to be used running the GUI. I would much prefer to have the
    speed and the memory available for server functions. This is on an OS/X
    10.2.6 machine.

    Thanks for any helpful replies.

    I think most of the GUI becomes inactive while Energy Saver has the
    video turned off. It should all swap out as needed.

    I think this is probably true. I'm running an OS X server at
    work. I just ssh'ed in and did a "top" to see what's what. The
    Finder and Window Manager (? not sure if the latter is relevant)
    are at 0.0 percent CPU usage, as is most everything else right
    now. I don't think booting directly into a shell is going to be
    worth the trouble.

    Still, if you really want to do it, there are instructions out
    there on the web as to how to do it--I've read them, just don't
    remember how to do it off the top of my head.
