How to disable X at boot time?

How to configure my Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop (Maverick) to start in a Terminal like mode? I don't want any graphics.

I can't get rid of GDM. How should I disable only graphical interface of my Ubuntu? I want it to start only in text mode, but I want that everything else would start-up.

I can't use recovery mode, because I want that it would run in text mode all the time even after restarts.

  • I can't understand the "I can't get rid of GDM". Removing GDM seems to be what you are looking for. – João Pinto Jan 20 '11 at 21:29
