这个howtogeek看起来还不错,关于vmware+ubuntu的好几个问题似乎都在这儿找到答案了。

If you are running an Ubuntu guest in VMware, you may have found that you cannot switch into the Console mode using Ctrl+Alt+F1. If you try, you will encounter a blank screen and won’t see a login prompt at all.

There’s an easy workaround for this, but it’s not an obvious one. I’ll have to thank larstr on IRC for this tip.

Open up /boot/grub/menu.lst using the following command (or use your favorite editor)

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Find the section that looks like this:

## ## End Default Options ##

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-386
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-386 root=UUID=8312b3d9-e087-439b-8f3b-21f4b00434f1 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-386
savedefault
boot

Remove “splash” from the kernel line. Save the file, and reboot.

You should now be able to switch to console mode by using Ctrl+Alt+F1  (or F2-F6)
