Hi Terus
I'm not sure because of "virtualbox".
Try this:
open a root-terminal and type init 3 ,if some messages appear..press enter again,
now you should have a prompt.
to switch back type init 4

Logout as usual which will take you to the slim login manager. There you can enter the word 'console' which will bring up a somewhat annoying small console. If you a want full screen console then at first boot hit TAB and add the number 3 to the boot parameters. Then when you boot into text mode login and type: startx

When you logout you will be dropped back to init 3 in full screen.

Thanks: tab 3 and init 3 works - 'console' don't know because of black screen in virtualbox.
