I've just installed crunchbang linux (based on Debian) on some really old hardware (we're talking single cores and DDR memory here) for a simple home server.
However, seeing as the hardware sucks (or for some other reason) X cannot start gdm. This really doesn't bother me because the server won't have a display, I will be ssh'ing in via my workstation. However it's a problem because when I reboot the machine it gets stuck on an X error message (something like "Cannot start X blah blah") and needs direct input to continue. Is there a way I can disable (or even remove) X and the X server from my machine so that I only ever boot into a command line? Is it safe?
