Thread: How to start Console at boot instead of KDE ?

  1. #1

    Default How to start Console at boot instead of KDE ?

    It's a stupid but annoying problem.

    I am doing an nVidia driver installation and I need to do this in order to complete the install.

    I have read the nVidia thread and the method suggested there doesn't work for me.

    Here is what I did

    -blacklisted nouveu
    -added "nomodest" to Bootloader - > Kernel Parameter
    -attempted to choose Failsafe login

    Here is what happened

    When I chose Failsafe the computer just froze.

    So the method suggested in the nVidia thread for Console login didn't work for me.

    I also tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 but this doesn't count, since if there is a GUI session running, the driver install fails.

    Do you know any other method for Console Login so I can complete the install ?

    Add a '3' to the kernel command line.

    Btw, you don't need "nomodeset" if you blacklisted nouveau.
    OTOH, if you add "nomodeset", there's no need to blacklist nouveau because it cannot be loaded anyway (it only works with kernel modesetting).

    Thanks, that worked.
