Hi, I'm trying to install the NVIDIA drivers for my video card on Linux 7.3. It says I need to nothave X-server running to do this. Can somebody tell me how to stop x-server and get in with just a prompt so I can load this file? Thanks!!!
Yeah, if you're in runlevel 5, ctrl atl backspace will either put you to standby or restart X11. No good. Just boot up in runlevel 3. Either type Linux 3 in lilo or add a 3 to te end of your append line in grub and boot.
I just get a blank screen, no prompt, cursor,etc. I end up having
to crtl+alt+del. It,s no big deal since I changed mdk9.1 default so
that I log in to the cmd line. This also happens if I log off as user.
It,s only irritating since I feel I will learn more if I use cmd as much
as possible. Thanks for your time!
