Ubuntu – How to boot into Text mode

Reblog >> XCELLENTCY

This post is a re-blog of what I felt would be useful for some. I wanted to install an Ubuntu 12.10 instance which runs on text mode. The blog mentions on Ubuntu 10 and 11, but this is the same for 12 as well….

Open grub configuration for editing;

$ sudo nano /etc/default/grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash” into GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”text”
when done save change by pressing ctrl+O (save) and ctrl+X (exit)

Now upgrade grub, type;

$ sudo update-grub

Reboot your computer;

$ sudo rebbot

Now your Ubuntu will boot on text mode
