Ubuntu :: 9.10 Cannot Boot To Command Line Login Screen?

Mar 13, 2010

I have used the below command to do that successfully for the previous version of ububunt, but this time I failed to do that with Ubuntu 9.10. I know I can do that manually by "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop" command. I try to change the name of /etc/init.d/gdm files, but the problem still exist.m"sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove"

Ubuntu :: New Install Boots To Command Line Login

Feb 21, 2011

I decided to dual boot install Ubuntu with my Windows 7. After a lot of hair pulling, i finally managed to boot the live cd environment with "nomodeset". From there i installed ubuntu. When it finished installing, i booted to the new ubuntu install only to be presented with a command line login. If i change the boot line from "quiet splash" to "nomodeset", i can coax ubuntu to boot in low graphics mode. However this is not a permanent fix, and doing so causes a 2 inch offest of the screen on the right hand side. Only the have the missing 2 inches appear on the left side. If from the "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode" message, i select "console login", and type "startx" i just comes out with "X Server Fatal error- No Screens found". I also tried:

Code:

But it still didn't help. I'm running out if ideas here, can anyone point me in the right direction?

This is a cd that i got free from Canonical themselves. It's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I have Intel Integrated Graphics.

Ubuntu :: CLI Version Of 10.04 - When Rebooted The Command-line Login Would Not Accept My Password

Jun 8, 2010

I have an old PC (130mb RAM, 6gb hard drive).

I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Alternate CD. The machine was wiped, and I used most of the default settings.

I used a thirteen character user id which consisted of mixed case letters and numbers, and an eighteen character password that contains mixed case letters and numbers and a # sign.

When I rebooted, the command-line login would not accept my password. I assumed I had somehow made a mistake, and just wiped the machine again and reinstalled. This time I was very careful with the user name/pw.

Again, the command-line login did not accept my password!

On a hunch, I took an old Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD and erased the machine again. I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu. AGAIN --- it will not accept my password even though I'm 100% sure it is correct.

If I select advanced options. Then recovery mode, I can get a command line. If I can login there, then I do not know how to.

General :: Using Command Line To Connect To A Wireless Network With An Http Login?

Apr 18, 2010

I'm trying to connect to a wifi network where it hijacks all requests and redirects you to a page where you have to agree to a terms of use before it lets you connect to the actual outside world. This is a pretty common practice, and usually doesn't pose much of a problem. However, I've got a computer running Ubuntu 9.10 server with no windowing system. How can I use the command line to agree to the terms of use? I don't have internet access on the computer to download packages via apt-get or anything like that. Sure, I can think of any number of workarounds, but I suspect there's an easy way to use wget or curl or something.

Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Boot \ Opened The Screen But The Login Screen Wouldn't Appear?

Oct 1, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04.1 and I run it 24 hours a day. Recently one morning I went to my laptop and opened the screen but the login screen wouldn't appear. Anytime the cursor appeared, HDD activity would go to 100%. I'm assuming this because the HDD light on my laptop was permanently on. So I made the dumb decision of just holding the power button down and turning it off. When I turned it back on, I noticed it came to a command prompt type screen listing "initramfs" at the bottom apparently wanting me to input a command. I did a lot of research and couldn't find much of anything that would help me. I read about GRUB, superblocks, fsck, e2fsck, etc.. . I tried all of those and nothing has worked so far. Any ideas? I did notice one thing. When I went into the actual install with the livecd, it told me the drive was /dev/sda5, but in Disk Utility on the livecd, it told me it was /dev/sda1

General :: Command Line - How To View More Of My History In Screen

Jun 28, 2011

I was running scripts overnight from the command line (inside Screen on a Linux EC2 instance) and some errors that I was not tracking occurred. I want to "scroll up" or view more of the history in Screen, but I cannot seem to find any commands that will work. I need to see the onscreen output "further up" than I can on my current screen. CTRL + a is supposed to put me into scroll mode inside Screen, but it's not working.

Programming :: Full Screen Java App From Command Line?

Oct 29, 2010

I am trying to make a java application run on a barebone computer connected to a tv screen trough hdmi. I want to make this run as light as possible so gnome probably is overkill. currently I'm running fluxbox but I would like to encapsulate video and some other gui stuff in the program and run it command line(trough startup script.) Another way to do this would be running it when fluxbox starts in full screen. But I really don't know how to do this or where to edit the startup script so I can run it. I'm using ubuntu 10.04 server edition and only installed jre, fluxbox, and of course ssh-server.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - How To Boot To Command Line

May 24, 2011

Despite my best efforts to have them use debian or ubuntu server, a client wanted ubuntu 11 on the new server they built. It runs all the services I need it to, but would be nicer to have that server boot to command line. It seems nothing is going to work. I have tried:

1. changing /etc/default/grub to "quiet splash text"

result: blank screen

2. sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove

result: no change

3. echo manual | sudo tee -a /etc/init/gdm.override

result: blank screen

Has anyone gotten Ubuntu 11.04 to boot to command line out there?
