How to get text boot on KDE Neon
#1
Hello everyone,
happily writing from my brand new 11' pinebook. Everything works and since there are not many distros with full support I think I'll stick with the default KDE Neon for now.
I am however a sucker login shells and boot messages, so I'd like to tell grub to boot into command like and not showing a splash screen. How do I do it?

I come from Ubuntu (/etc/default/grub into update-grub) and Arch linux (same but with grub-mkconfig), but none of the methods I know worked. I found /etc/default/grub.d/99_breeze-grub.cfg but after editing it I have no idea how to confirm the changes. Can anyone help me?

There is no grub, uboot is the bootloader.

Okay, I wasn't sure but I found grub commands and config files and got mislead.

Is there any way to boot to a login shell on uboot then?

Edit: I'm not actually sure if uboot is even the right approach to this; I've tried disabling KDE and X in general on startup in various ways but nothing seems to work...

Why not just switch to tty2 ? - ctrl+alt+f2

I was under the impression that most builds beyond KDE Neon did not support every feature for the new 1080 Pinebook (for now). Anyway I have a 64GB EMMC to use so I'm eventually going to install something else, I just wanted to first try it out with its default image.

Yes, I can do that. I can then proceed to kill KDE if I want, but it feels a bit hackish. There must be a way to prevent X from running on startup, no?

Edit: just found it. I need to disable sddm service (systemctl disable sddm). Now it boots on the login shell, but while it does the screen stays black. Is it possible to have system messages printed during the boot process?
