I'm interested to benchmark a console-mode application, and would like to reduce to a minimum any interferences from other processes in the system.
Is there an easy way to boot into Ubuntu 12.04 in a "bare-metal" mode ? I'm still interested in casually booting a "desktop" version of Ubuntu (so will prefer to avoid permanent changes), and would like to avoid installing a separate Ubuntu-server version.
My use-case is the following -
- Application is single-thread and console-mode only.
- Test-box has 12GB of memory.
sshinto the test-box.
Seems I can skip at least Unity, X-server and their dependents.
