Run Level 3
I need to install drivers for my nvidia card. I can't do it unless I am running the system in run level 3. Problems is the boot menu(lilo) only gives me the option for run level 1 and 5 not three. What do I need to do so it boots in run level 3. Mandrake 10.1 Official and KDE.
Next time you need to temporarily change runlevels e.g. to install Nvidia drivers just type "init 3" in a console as root. Once you have finished, to get back into runlevel 5 just do "init 5" as root. No need to edit anything.
