Force Ubuntu to boot to console
« on: May 16, 2012, 07:38:03 PM »
Hi there,

I'm trying to get Ubuntu to boot directly into console by default. I've tried editing /etc/default/grub in a variety of ways:

Code: [Select]
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 

...

Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" 

I've tried "quiet splash text" and just "text" in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and it doesn't work.

...

Code: [Select]
GRUB_TERMINAL=console
This is the current setup. I always run update-grub after making a change.

It just doesn't have any effect, still boots into GUI. I would like to keep GUI around in case I need to open it.

Thank you for any help!
