Fairly new to this so stay with me.
I've installed up a copy of Kubuntu 9.10. I want to use it to play eve online and replace my copy of windows. So far I have managed to get it installed, got the video drivers and wine sorted, and got eve online to work with wine. I'm quite happy with myself up until odd things started to happen.
Basically, I want to recompile my Nvidia driver to a newer version, I know how to do this, I need to press ctrl alt F1 to drop to terminal, kill kde and then install the driver, i've done it before without issue. However this time around something is wrong. I press ctrl alt F1 and the black terminal window pops up... but I have no option to log in, same for terminals 2 - 6. I've done a bit of googling, and someone else with the same problem was told to do a ps a
I did this, and sure enough none of my tty processes are showing, i've basically lost my terminals
, as far as my limited experience goes, getty is responsible for the terminals right? How do I reinstate my terminals and get to a point i can kill kde and get back to shell?
I have no idea what i've done to get in this state.
Also, as a side question, before all got screwed up and i did manage to launch eve online, i could run one client perfectly. However with 2 clients things got all choppy and laggy? why is this? I can run 2 quite happily under windows 7
