Boot in Command Line From Fedora 17 Live Desktop


Sorry, I'm trying to learn and I apologize for the inconvenience. I am having a hard time figuring out how to boot it into command line, when it first boots up and it says press tab to edit this is as it states.

vmlinuz0 initrd=initrd0.img root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-17-x86_64-Live-Desktop.is rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb rd.luks=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0

Thank you

Does this <http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2012/howto-change-runlevel-on-grub2/> help?

Cheers,

That might be more useful in a general (disk) booting scenario. From the liveCD, just add the runlevel to the end and hit <Enter> (I think).
Personally (when I do something like this) I normally boot to single user mode (runlevel 1).

Of course, runlevels are somewhat meaningless with systemd.

Thank you both for the useful information. I did try using both the guide and putting the run level at the end, and it just boot into the regular desktop. Any other advice?

Just tested F17 _x64 liveCD.
"single" (full word, no quotes) works. It drops you to a "recovery mode" which is where I usually want/need to be if I'm doing this.

No network, but you can play around in the command line - as root !!!, so be warned.
As an aside, I usually delete "rhbg" from the boot line so I can see all the boot-up messages.

That worked, thank you. I guess I was just understanding it wrong.

Wonder if the boot option text would work?
