AntiX MATE: How do I stop DE from autostarting?


I do not want a graphical login.

I want to enter startx from the command line.

I have tried killing x-session. I have tried editing /etc/inittab and settiong the runlevel to zero.

Try setting

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"
in /etc/default/grub

Then run sudo update-grub

That did not work for me. I removed lightdm. That worked, but then the sound would not work. I gave up on Antix, and am now using Gentoo based Calculate Linux.
