Unhappy Stuck in init 3...


Ok guys, well im stuck in init3 because the X Server wont load. I need to edit my xorg.conf file so i can load the x server. This happened becuase i installed the wrong driver ( i think..) well anyways, can someone post on how to open and edit a file in init3?? stuck big time

NOTE: O and i believe the correct location of the file is /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and i wanna edit the part in the file from "Desktop nvidia" to "Desktop nv", so if you could post on how to edit that, that would be great! Thx

Mr. Stuck hehe

All you need to do is edit the file (yes in console mode) using an editor such as pico (nano), vi or emacs e.g.
Code:
#emacs /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Once you have made the right changes, then run "init 5" to start the xserver.

Try

# nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

or

# pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Check out the log file for the X server too for errors, it's in /var/log/ somewhere
