I issued the following:

#systemctl set-default multi-user.target
Which did what it was suppose to do. Boot to terminal

I'm running gnome3


How do I set the session to gdm from command line. I'd like to continue to boot to terminal the startx to start gnome3

Thanks.

I got things fixed with:

#systemctl isolate graphical.target.

I still need to learn what this does at the tty level.

Thanks for the post. A good read.
