Thanks Heema, I got binutils installed...but now I am at problem #2, when I try to install the nvidia drivers now I get this error:
- ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before
installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING
THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver
download page at www.nvidia.com.
I went to nvidia.com and looked at the README all it says is:
Q: When I try to install the driver, the installer claims that X is
running, even though I have exited X. What is wrong?
A: The installer detects the presence of an X server by checking for
X's lock files: /tmp/.X[n]-lock, where [n] is the number of the X
Display (the installer checks for X Displays 0-7). If you have exited
X, but one of these files have been left behind, then you will need
to manually delete the lock file. DO NOT remove this file is X is
How do I exit X? I can't for the life of me figure it out.
