[ubuntu] Runlevel issue

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all, I've virtualised Ubuntu to be able to run a script I need. Thing is, I'm having heavy issues in going into text mode. Whenever I set the runlevel to 1 or 3, Ubuntu just ignores it and keeps loading the desktop. Could someone tell me how to set it properly? I'm using ubuntu 12.10 if that matters. (Hardware)
