Disable GUI and set multi-user.target as the default mode


In old versions of jetpack, when I want to disable GUI mode, I used the following command:
sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target
This disable the ubuntu GUI and Open a black screen with just a terminal to work on.

In the new jetpack (Version 5.0.1), when I used the same command and reboot the Orin AGX, No terminal appears. why ?

ā€¢ Hardware Platform (Jetson AGX Orin)
ā€¢ JetPack Version 5.0.1

Moving this topic to the Jetson AGX Orin category.

Please try the commands:

   $ sudo systemctl stop gdm
   $ sudo loginctl terminate-seat seat0

I tried these command. The same results. No terminal opens. the orin looks like as if it is shutdown

@user147114 can you try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, Ctrl+Alt+F2, ect to bring up a terminal login?

@dusty_nv nothing happens when I press Ctrl+Alt+F1 or Ctrl+Alt+F2

Same issue here. I tried setting multi-user.target as default but I just get black screen (no Video signal).

Please refer to
Root File System ā€” Jetson Linux Developer Guide documentation

And generate the root file system without GUI.
