stop X on lxde
 
Sparkylinux 2.0.1 i386

Can someone please tell me how to stop X (to install nvidia driver) with LXDM (LXDE?) on this debian based system?

Why not install it like so
Code:

apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx
and reboot?

but does anyone know how to stop x?

sudo killall Xorg
mite work.

I believe the meaning of jim_p's suggestion is that it is not necessary to stop xorg, in order to install the driver. Simply install and re-boot.

thank you all for replies.

sudo killall Xorg only brings me back to login window.

does anyone know how to stop x?

You have to stop the display manager. On Debian Squeeze (standard install) it would be
Code:

service gdm stop
Replace that with the DM your system is using (for example slim, kdm, lightdm, ...).
