I've followed this guide to install CUDA on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It requires me to boot into text mode. However it appears really hard to get Ubuntu to actually start in text mode as needed to move on with CUDA installation.
I've tried following various guides to this including:
Booting into text mode in 16.04
I also tried GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="3" instead of "text" and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash 3"
No matter what it keeps booting into the standard graphics "windows" like interface. Any help would be much appreciated.
