Roadblocks

Evidently Natty doesn't like a CLI install (from the 11.04 Alternate install disc). It refuses to boot! Let's hope the Netboot installation works.

Update: As dpeter pointed out, the CLI install fails to work inside the testing environment (as well as older machines). Until this is ironed out, I can't really work on the project effectively.

Le Second Update: esauvisky pointed out that tty switching still works. I hate to do it, but I guess I have to make the user handle tty switching in order to get to the script until this bug is fixed. Thanks, mate!

Update the Third: Installing GNOME forces the install of Unity. This needs to stop happening. I'm not even sure why, because none of the dependency trees map out that way. I think the default install of GDM is designed to kick to Unity, even when it's not even installed.

Update4: Or not! It's just stupid and gives me the standard "your hardware can't run Unity" message, despite Unity not being installed at all.

ok, i think i could. appearly, the problem is with grub. it's switching to tty7 even without X11. (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+bug/695658)

i did it this way:
1- install from alternate following the guide
2- start the system and wait until hdd light stops blinking
3- change to tty1 with ctrl+alt+F1 (or HostKey+F1 on virtualbox)
