probably a simple question, but i think im wording things wrongly to the googles:
i have a ubuntu 11 server that 90% of the time runs headless, and is only accessed over ssh.
i use it as a workstation occasionally, and use the GUI when i do. however, i do not want GDM / graphical login stuff to run at boot and waste resources.
tl;dr -- i want to have gnome installed, but not run until i login and "startx"
easy way to ensure i boot to a CLI only in ubuntu 11?
