View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to startup with CLI

January 1st, 2009, 05:57 AM
Hi everyone, sorry but kind of new to linux. I've installed Ubuntu 7.10 but I had some initial problems with the graphics. It loads to a black screen but never shows errors. Many places online said that this is usually a problem with nvidia drivers. So I was going to reconfigure x-windows... but I cant do that since I can't get to the command line. Is there a way to start up ubuntu in command line mode from grub?

Choose the recovery mode.

Oh! haha, simple. I didnt know what that was and didn't want to go choosing it and messing with it since I didn't. Thanks!
