baffled by sys(8) utility option
I'm following some instructions on how to establish my old scrn res but have recievied some unexpected options that i don't understand?
The procedure is as follows:
sudo install NVIDIA-Linux-185.18.pkg.run /usr/src
sudo ln -fs /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-185.18.pkg.run /usr/src/nvidia-driver
Now, it's time to stop X and the gdm (or kdm for Kubuntu Users)
This requires that you logout and switch to another tty console ( Ctrl+Alt+F1 ).
Login to the shell, and kill gdm:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
[But this returns...]
Rather than invoking init script through /etc/init.d/gdm, use the service( utility, e.g. service
Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an upstart job, you may also use the stop( utility, eg stop gdm stop:...
[~$ stop gdm stop returns:]
~$ stop gdm stop
stop: Env must be KEY=VALUE pairs
[i'm completely flummoxed by what ever options i'm being offered here]
