ive never had to edit grub to do something ridiculously simple like that...

grub should be responsible for pointing your computer in the right direction to your kernal... you dont need to add fifty options to start your OS up a certain way because its easy enough just to edit runlevels and pick one to boot by default lol

ubuntu is a nice intro to linux, but a more traditional linux install is actually simpler
well considering debian is one of the oldest distro, what would be a "traditional" distro, they all have the way they handle init. i wouldn't necessarily call "arch's" init setup "traditional" anymore than i'd call fedora's or debians and ubuntu's. upstart is a init daemon, there are a lot of benefits to upstart, takes a bit to get use to, but once you do, its actually a good little system .

there are actually way easier ways in ubuntu to change the "runlevel" than going thru grub, that i did mention in a previous post that you could use, probably even easier than editing inittab.

Since when did you gain absolute authority on when to end a thread or not? Forums are for discussion and if people want to discuss alternate methods and query about whether their methods will or won't work, what is the harm in letting them do so?

Take a pill.

I would normally use arch, obviously it would have been easier and more simple. But it's only for a VM and I already had the ubuntu iso downloaded.

Well, if you're using an existing ISO, it's pointless recommending others (otherwise I'd have said grab Ubuntu server edition)

Yo. Not seen you around in ages. You seem to only be in the linux section now.

I've never really experimented with server edition, might be worth looking into.

I never saw the point in ubuntu server edition unless you wanted to start out with a bloated server with canonical's arguably buggy tweaks to Debian.

In my mind, Debian > Ubuntu always when it comes to servers.

Do share. I just brought up an Ubuntu server, and besides the obvious Debian-ish stuff, I didn't see anything seriously wrong with it.

I basically just said it in my post above. Ignoring the differences like Canonical changing out a few things like upstart etc... the only real difference between the two was that Ubuntu had prepackaged software and unstable (Ubuntu) repos. Granted, I was given a box with Ubuntu-server flashed onto it and I don't know if there's a way to have a minimal install. Especially in servers, I don't ever see the point in doing a non-minimal install and I honestly prefer to have Debian's "outdated, yet stable" repos; I can always backport if needed.

Why use a distribution with a desktop-related philosophy for a server OS when the distribution it's built on has a philosophy that works perfect with servers?

I'm basically a Debian, Gentoo, or FreeBSD fanboy when it comes to servers. I obsess over minimalism and optimization.
