Not in your PATH? Tried '/sbin/telinit'?

Note to the curious: this command changes your runlevel e.g. telinit 0 shuts down your computer.

Another try

Same thing but

init x

x is the number you want to change to.

0 shutdown
1 single user
2 I dunno
3 multi-user command line
4 I dunno
6 reboot

If you are installing NVIDIA drivers you want 3.

Later dude.
