So it should be done in a way that if x automatic start on bootup
is disabled, you should naturally only get a text login.

Otherwise, i've seen often mentioned F7 for the current graphical
login recently ... Just try it on a mga1 box, press Ctrl+Alt+F7, that's no
graphical login. that has been on 8 for quite some time, dating
back to Mandriva. Just for reference.
