    Default to command line boot in 12.10

    Hey can anyone help me make my Ubuntu 12.10 machine boot to command line by default? All the help I have found was outdated.

    edit /etc/default/grub with editor of choice such as gedit or nano

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    find this line
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash”
    change to

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash text”
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    This should work unless something has changed in 12.10, I cant say categorically as i dont use Ubuntu.

    Peace

    I'm pretty sure haqking is right, that's how it's worked for a long time. Note that you'll have to use nano, not gedit, once you get into text-only mode. I'm also sure that since you want to get there at boot, you most likely know that. Or, you're an insane man on a text-based rampage...

    I'll try it on a VM real quick, gimme a minute.

    *EDIT yup, nothing's changed.
