recently i installed ubuntu11.10,i'm not familiar with the Debian/Ubuntu series,i don't know how to change runlevel of it,it default starts the graphical interface,but how to change it to the terminal interface?
The Debian family doesn't really make use of different runlevels, they only use runlevel 2 and runlevels 3-5 are not used, but the same as runlevel 2. If you want to have a runlevel without GUI you have to make it yourself, I think that Ubuntu has a graphical tool for it, but it should also be possible to configure that over the commandline. In the past I would have used sysv-rc-conf for that, but since Ubuntu changed to Upstart I don't know how to do it. All you have to do is to disable the display manager.
