restarting x-server


I've got a quick newbie question for ya, since this is the first time I've actually installed my nvidia drivers.

What's the command to restart x-server?

Thanks for the help

ctrl+alt+<backspace> kills the x server. Then depending on how things are setup you will be sent to either your display mangager or a command line. From the display manager simply log back in. From the command line type `startx` to restart the x server.
