Booting into command line on OPI PC +


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I recently got an orange pi pc plus, and am going to try to use it as a server. However, I do not want it to boot into the desktop GUI as this wastes precious computational resources. How do I force the Pi to boot into the terminal? I am using armbian in order to have the system boot off of the EMMC flash memory. 

Thanks.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Not true at all but if you fear a starting desktop environment then do it as outlined in documentation or simply by

systemctl stop nodm
systemctl disable nodm

in a shell as root. I'm currently doing consumption monitoring and the difference between an idling X Windows and no X Windows is not able to be measured. At least as long as you use Armbian defaults :)
