Booting into command line
This is very handy when you need to upgrade graphics drivers etc.
1. Edit the Grub config file
sudo vim /etc/default/grub
Make the following changes:
a) Comment the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash” b) Change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”text” c) Uncomment this line #GRUB_TERMINAL=console
2. Update the Grub config
The system will now boot directly into text mode.
To go back to graphical mode, just reverse thse changes.
