Running updated forcal-fossa
I want to boot to console/text mode and later call startx if I want X.
Found the directions for doing that except its for 14.?? from the
handbook and made the modifications suggested there, in
/etc/default/grub. Then ran `update-grub'
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
# info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

| # GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash resume=UUID=58ccce28-21fa-465a-9ec9-9a38d74549e3"
| ## Commented
| ## GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=
| ## Edited adding `text'
# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
| ## removed comment
# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

When I rebooted, I do get to see the boot messages but the boot ends
up at the greeter login screen in X so when I log in I'm in X when I
should be in console(text) Mode.
I want to end up in console mode with a text login and no X.
What else do I need to do for that to happen?
