how to enter text mode when power on?
« on: April 30, 2009, 11:24:31 AM »
Hi,
     After I install TCL into my harddisk, I want to always start switch to text mode, not in GUI mode. I tried add text or superuser boot setting into menu.lst kernel config. but it always enter GUI mode, how should I config? Thanks.

Could you post your menu.lst?

My menulist as following.

default 0
timeout 10
title tinycore
kernel /boot/bzImage text quiet
initrd /boot/tinycore.gz

which didn't works. then I changed as following:

default 0
timeout 10
title tinycore
kernel /boot/bzImage superuser quiet
initrd /boot/tinycore.gz

but it still didn't work.

Two things to try:

- first see if the command "showbootcodes" shows your arguments
- if they are shown, try putting the codes after "quiet"
