Hello, newest Debian for A20 works ok but does anyone know what would be the best solution to disable graphical UI to load automatically on startup?  I would like to have an option to start shell only.

If I remember, it is started from /root/.bashrc. Simply remove the line where the call is made.

looked for .bashrc at /root/.bashrc and references to lightdm and startx are commented out

#/etc/init.d/lightdm start
#startx&

/etc/X11/default-display-manager ; replace only line with /usr/bin/true

you can always start login manager by typing slim into console later
