General Unix Would you be able to survive one full day without using the X server? Linux offers us a wide assortment of CLI based tools which use curses and/or framebuffer for functional user interfaces. There is no reason why you shouldn't be able look up stuff online, read your email, look at pictures, watch movies and listen to music as you are trying to configure X.

Text Mode Life

I run text mode every once in awhile usually during the building a new LFS build(and when procrastinating the building of a new X client under LFS). My favorite apps: CenterICQ for IM client and links built with framebuffer support for full graphical webpages outside of X. Or I would just restart into Mandriva.
