Doing that and it does kill it, however it still restarts the X server.
Maybe I should ask this: Where should I run the command? Should I run it in console while in X, or should I ctrl+alt+f4 to the command line? Im trying to run it in the command line and when I run that, it starts X up and I have to do ctrl+alt+f4 to go back to the command line. Typing startx tells me that X is still running. The proccess ID changes everytime to, I do know that killing it is doing something...
Maybe it would be easier to change it to text login...in that case how would I do that?
Sorry about this, but i was wondering how you shut it down on mandrake 10.0 ..
I need to install my Nvidia Drivers. and of course it says I need to shut down my X Server. hope some one could help..
Note that some distros will leave X running under 3, so you might want to go all out and go
I usually do, because it's faster and loads minimal modules. Then you can
and boom you're back.
