I need to somehow boot from Grub w/o even starting or trying to start X and display manager. I tried
linux (hd1,msdos3)/boot/vmlinuz-*** root=/dev/sdb3 ro text
but this started kdm regardless. I can't boot into graphic shell because the last update screwed graphic card drivers, and when the boot sequence hits the point where it launches the display manager it hangs forever.
I'm using Fedora Core 17 if that matters.
I don't think I can edit files from Grub, certainly not delete them, but I think there was some other option, something to tell it to boot into run-level 3, perhaps
-3, or some such?
