Howto: Disable GUI Desktop on Solaris 10 19 December 2010

Posted by Maulvi Bakar in : Unix,Work , trackback

My life seems to be centered around *NIX. After many false start, I am about to embark on a serious Solaris journey.

*NIX politics aside. I’ve formed judgment already, but I reserve publishing it at the moment. For the time being, enough said – it is a pure workplace choice.

By default, Oracle Solaris 10 will start with Gnome/CDE GUI interface upon start-up. To disable GUI, especially if you intend to run a headless server, do this –

# /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -d

To enable it again, simply –

# /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e
