HOWTO - Disable GDM on Ubuntu Server 10.04

Ubuntu lucid replaces the old init system with upstart, this means you can't use update-rc.d gdm -f remove to stop it starting up at bootup. So to disable it we need to edit the upstart files in /etc/init/gdm.conf and change:

start on (filesystem
          and started hal
          and tty-device-added KERNEL=tty7
          and (graphics-device-added or stopped udevtrigger))
stop on runlevel [016]

to

start on (runlevel [3]
          and filesystem
          and started hal
          and tty-device-added KERNEL=tty7
          and (graphics-device-added or stopped udevtrigger))
stop on runlevel [0126]
