Hi Daniel,

thank you for your reply.

There are some unanswered questions.
Why does one have to consider multiple run levels? Doesn't run level 3
(network + X) implicate run level 2 (network)?
So if I don't use XDM (or equivalent) and the system starts with a login
shell only, it would start run level 2 services. And if I use XDM and
the system starts using X it would also load run level 2 services?
