I want to boot temporary into text mode using grub2 and followed the steps explained in How to boot into command line on Ubuntu or Debian. Running
cat /proc/cmdline from the terminal than gives the following output:
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-30-generic root=UUID=65462cb0-1e5e-438a-a8d8-4d93877cc7ca ro text vt.handoff=7
From which I understand that the kernel parameter 'text' was interpreted. However the system still boots with display manager.
I suspect this is caused by systemd bypassing whatever has interpreted the 'text' argument. Hence my question: how can I temporary start the system in text mode from grub2 at boot?
