- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Yep. sudo just as described above. I got the following message which made me think everything worked as planned:
Removing any system startup links for /etc/init.d/gdm ...
But when I rebooted, nothing changed.
I am suspicious of not having rcconf installed although regardless there must be a simple way to boot into terminal... hrmph.
sudo mv /etc/rc2.d/S20gdm /etc/rc2.d/K20gdm
sudo mv /etc/rc2.d/K20gdm /etc/rc2.d/S20gdm
Well sheesh... I don't have s20gdm in /etc/rc2.d. I see lots of other s20* symlinks, but no gmd. No files, everything in this folder is a symlink.
Not sure if this is helpful, but I see a symlink called gdm located in /etc/init.d that points to /lib/init/upstart-job.
This maybe a stupid Question but ..
Doesn't the console mode not use X. Control- Alt- and any short cut key from F2-F6. Control- Alt- F1 brings you back to an X session. All pressed at the same time of coarse.
Yes, that works but I want to simply boot directly into terminal with no gui rather than cntrl>alt>F1.
Here are all the symlinks listed in /etc/rc2.d in cast that helps.

I'm using Mint Debian edition gdm symlink is in rc2.d and /etc/inittab exists as well.
