Do you mean Ctrl+Alt+F3 works after logging in ?algorithm! wrote:Ctrl-alt-f3 does not work in this screen to open a terminal screen at that window unless I log in
Did you try to switch to other consoles (F1 to F6) ?
Loading the module won't corrupt the window manager which is not started in recovery mode.algorithm! wrote:The other way is to use recovery mode from the grub menu which stops at a text terminal window. The i810 module was not loaded and I did not modprobe i810 being careful not to corrupt the window manager.
From recovery mode you can modprobe i810 then press Ctrl+d or type "exit" to leave the emergency mode and resume normal boot.
Ctrl+Alt+F3 does not stop the display manager, it just switches to virtual console 3 (tty3) instead of the current one (and do nothing if tty3 is already the active console). You can stop the display manager with the systemctl command I indicated but it will also kill the current graphical session, which is not very clean.algorithm! wrote:Can I stop the display manager in a terminal window (ctrl-alt-F3) after logging in?
