    Is it possible to disable graphical boot screen?

    64 bit 10.04

    Is it possible to disable the graphical boot screen so that the boot process shows what's actually happening, like "old" linux versions used to do? (Scrolling text, "starting this... starting that..." etc.)

    I still want to boot into X when it's done, just don't want the lo-res 5 dot display. I'm trying to fault find and the graphic doesn't really help.

    In /etc/default/grub, change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"
    Then run sudo update-grub
    Reboot, and after you login, run startx to load Gnome.

    Thanks from me also. I've been searching all over these forums trying to find this magical answer. Works perfectly.

    What do I have to do (sorry, I'm a bit noob) to have a text only boot sequence as the tip above fixed, but then have the server automatically start Gnome when/if everything has loaded successfully?

    I.e. not having to type "startx"...

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    to get it, just leave this option empty:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
