This doesn't have anything to do with the drivers really, it's the installation process that's killing me.
I can't figure out how to get out of the x-server so I can install these things. Here is what I've tried:
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace - this just closes my x-session and puts me to the kde login screen
Ctrl+Alt+F6 - this takes me to the terminal but when I try to run the driver files it gives me an error saying that X is still running. When I type in 'ps' the only processess listed are bash and ps.
logging into the "fail safe" mode from the kde login screen - this logs me into some graphical full screen version of the console and the installer tells me the same thing as C+A+F6.
How can I get to just the terminal without X starting? is there an easy way to disable it temporarily (I'm running College Linux 2.5) like in mandrake?
or, how can I make a LILO entry to boot straight to the terminal rather than into X like Mandrake has?
All help is greatly appreciated.
