The following tips are sent to me by our friend Oleksis and in it it shows us how to start the boot of Ubuntu 11.10 in text mode (console) to see the services and modules that are executed when loading the Kernel Linux.
This is very useful in the case of presenting very old monitors which do not support starting in splash mode or have a low resolution to start in splash mode.
For this we need to edit the configuration of the Grub in the file / Etc / default / grub and uncomment the following line:
We update the configuration of the Grub
And in the next system boot, we would start in text mode, until we start the session manager that we have by default to enter the system.
Remember if you have activated other terminals (tty) you can switch between them by pressing [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Fx] where x It is a number (1..7) that depends on the number of terminals that we have enabled.
I hope you find it useful.
