Booting to a text console, not GUI --- Nvidia GeForce GTX650

I have had problems with my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 card earlier. See here and here.

Today, I installed a large update and now the computer boots to a text console — TTY1.

I can do startx and Gnome starts as expected. There. are no errors reported on the console, just some warnings about keymaps.

How do I get into the GUI as the computer starts?

If you properly have installed the video-nvidia-470xx drivers and the linux modules, then look into setting Early KMS


@bogdancovaciu Sorry for the delayed reply. The situation seems to be murkier. And now it is not letting me edit the question. I will ask a fresh question.
