I'm running 2010 KDE.. I'm trying to set up the system so I get the non GUI boot.
I just want to see the text messages reporting the boot progress and then have the process stop at the non GUI 'login' prompt. (From there I like to log in under my username and then type 'startx' to get KDE running).
I managed this with 2009, but can't seem to find the 'magic bullet' in 2010. In the control center under 'boot', I've selected GRUB with TEXT MENU. But I can't find any way to turn off the display manager. When I boot, the fancy graphic screen blocks out the start up messages and then takes me to the graphical display login.
Also, [CTRL+ALT+Backspace] won't get me out of the GUI display and drop me to the console.. I just get a speaker beep... How do I get this feature back?
