Run Aqua apps from X11 after booting in console mode
Authored by: danieleprocida on Nov 12, '03 07:04:02PM
I fail to see what the above-described experience has to do with X11. Try this:

1. Log out, so that there are no users logged in
2. At the Login prompt, type >console for the user name and press return
3. You'll have a console shell up; login as root (if you don't do this as root you'll end up with an unusable blue screen).
4. type cd /Applications/utilities
5. type open
6. The Terminal will open. Now in the terminal you can open any applications you choose, including, and so on, from /System/Library/CoreServices/ until bit by bit you have what mostly resembles a normal Mac interface.
7. So far, the only away I've discovered to get out of this and back to normal is to issue a reboot command in the terminal as root.

So it's interesting, but I don't see what it has to do with X11. (It's not going to get anyone any closer to remote access to Aqua applications, which is what I hoped this might be leading towards.)
