could someone tell me how to change the run level at boot? I want to see everything starting and then go to the gui logon.

Not entirely sure what you mean . . .

Do you want to see the scrolling tty display of everything?

yeah i think that's what it's called tty. I'm tryin to do this from memory but I just came home from prison and I kinda forgot some stuff.

You don't need to change the run level, what you're talking about is turning off the splash screen right?

Easiest way is to install startup manager:


sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Then from the System menu -> Administration -> Startup-manager and uncheck 'Show splash' then exit the app. Reboot and you should see a verbose boot ;)
