Question Installing display driver


Hi,
guys m new to Linux jus Learned cp and mv nothing much.
Yesterday I installed Linux in my PC downloaded nvidia drivers for Linux.
It asks to terminate x server first then try again but i don't know how.
I tried Ctrl + Alt + Backspace
but it jus throw me out to login screen.

I've installed Red hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 (santiago).

I own a Sony Ericsson Aspen and it gives me nearLy 10kbps when connected to Linux whereas in Windows it sucks all speed and nothing opens in web browser, i know that always something updating process runs in background and that prevents me from using my internet. its not that fast enough but atLeast i can surf a littiLe and check my emails.

I jus wants to see how it Looks with Display Driver installed.

In a terminal, init 1 or init s will get you to single user test only mode, or ctrl+alt+F1 to get to a console. You can then do the installation.

If you used init 1 or init s to do the installation, use init 5 or startx to get back to GUI mode. If you used ctrl+alt+F1, then ctrl+alt+F7 to get back to GUI.

At first, leet/text/sms-speak is not appreciated at these forums, so please write you posts in proper English.

To your problem, add the line
Code:
blacklist nouveau
to the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, then reboot and try again.
