I have a Debian Squeeze variant (MintPPC 9) installed on an old Mac Powerbook G4 (PowerPC CPU). I wish to boot it into a multiuser CLI login shell instead of automatically booting into the login screen for LXDE. I do, however, wish to keep GDM or whatever DM is used by LXDE since I also use it to switch between LXDE and Awesome WM.
I wish to boot by default into a CLI login shell; I could then
startx to start my GUI if I need it. I am aware that
Ctrl-Alt-(F1-6) will open a separate tty instance with a login shell but it seems wasteful to have a GUI running even if asleep if I am working purely from the command line particularly considering the limited resources of my Powerbook G4.
I now know how to do this on Ubuntu installs on other, Intel based machines, by configuring GRUB, however this machine uses Yaboot as the bootloader.
