Grub gives me two options, boot Ubuntu and boot Ubuntu Rescue Mode (or something alike). When I boot Ubuntu, I get to the point where dmesg gives green timestamps, but just before a login prompt would appear (I assume), it switches into graphics mode and subsequently sends my monitor into sleep mode, as there is no desktop environment installed.
I can access the box vie ssh, though, where it works as expected. When I boot into Rescue Mode, it will present me with a prompt, whether I want to continue booting. When I confirm, I will get the login prompt. But this requires my interaction - what I want is boot to a text login prompt without any neediness for my attention.
In grub2 config
GRUB_TERMINAL=console is set.
Anyone can tell from this information, what is happening?
