I'm experimenting with a Fedora box, and looking for
the shortest, safest way to take X off for server use.
So far it looks like this works.  As root, edit
/etc/inittab, change the default runlevel to 2 or
3, then

# yum remove libX11

and let yum calculate and remove the long list of
things that depend on the key X library.  Is there
a better way, or did I miss something?
