I'm taking a Beginners Administration for Linux class, and one of the things we are learning is how to change "runlevel" in order to optimize efficiency and security of a server. However, when I run the command "init 1" or "telinit 1" it brings my computer to the Ubuntu loading screen, looks like it is loading something, and then freezes.
I have tried this with the same results on both my dedicated desktop and on a separate computer through a virtual machine.
Am I doing something wrong? I am a borderline n00b so I understand it is probable I am missing something obvious.
