Runlevels on Debian Linux

Runlevels are modes of using Debian Linux. The modes can be starting the system, shutting down the system or restarting the system. The common runlevels are numbered from 0 to 6.

Runlevels 2 to 5 mean the multi-user mode. For example, when using the desktop, I use runlevel 2. I can assign another runlevel I like.

Runlevel 0 means halting the system. Runlevel 1 means switching from the multi-user mode to the single-user mode.  Runlevel 6 means rebooting or restarting the system.
