i was wondering how i could close the Xserver in order to install the display drivers for my nVIDIA GeForce MX4000
I have tryed following the instructions provided by the ppl form nVIDIA but i run into a bit of a problem...
I'm running SUSE 9.1 on a AMD sempron 2200+ with a ASUS K7v8x-x MB
512MB DDR, 80GB HDD, nVIDIA Geforce MX4000 128MB,
The instructions to install the drivers were:
1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means installing the 'kernel-source', 'make' and 'gcc' packages with YaST2. Update it - if not already done - via YaST2 Online Update (YOU).
2) Use the nvidia installer for 1.0-8178.
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run -q
3) Configure XFree86 with
sax2 -m 0=nvidia (0 is a digit, not a letter!)
NOTE: There is no need to try to enable 3D support. It's already enabled, when the nvidia driver is running.
THE ERROR I GET WHEN TRYING TO RUN THE FIRST COMMAND sh NVIDIA... etc IS THIS
NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (1.0-8178)
ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the chapter "Installing the NVIDIA Driver" in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com
NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux www.nvidia.com
i WOULD APPRECIATE IF YOU COULD TELL ME HOW TO TURN OFF THE xSERVER SO THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO INSTALL DISPLAY ADAPTER.
