How to enable boot messages to be printed on screen during boot up?

Hello when I do reboot or init 6 in console under ubuntu 12.04 my system does not start correctly. it freezes in startup process.

Wow can I enable the boot-messages instead of the splash-screen.

Is this still valid for ubuntu 12.04? How to enable boot messages to be printed on screen during boot up?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I would suggest that you try the duplicate - if it does not work - a small bounty asking for an update usually works. – fossfreedom Oct 10 '12 at 15:19
I've added another answer to the referenced question to update it for more recent releases. The graphics need to be set or reset to text mode to see the messages. Please comment on the referenced question if you find problems. – John S Gruber Oct 10 '12 at 15:53

Yes. the link is still valid. You can use both methods(editing the GRUB file, and editing the command-line during boot).
