I need to diagnose slow start-up and shutdown issues so it would be nice
to be able to get rid of all the pretty (but totally pointless) splash
screens and GUIs which run at start-up and shutdown.
Ideally I'd like to be able to do what one used to be able to do by
setting the run level in /etc/inittab such that no attempt was made to
start X after booting. Then one could run startx manually to start the
I've attempted to configure grub to run in text mode at start up but,
after showing me the boot selection screen all I get is a black screen
and a cursor, no output at all.
Also, at shutdown, how can I disable the xubuntu splash screen and see
