How to install new Nvidia module in Chakra Linux


I used ubutu as my os previously.But i like to learn linux more deeply.
so i install chakra in to my laptop.Then i update it.During updating i got a error massage

ERROR: Module nvidia is in use
In order to use the new nvidia module, exit Xserver and unload it manually.

Well, the error is very clear....you need to exit X, and load it. So either boot up and put in a "3" in your grub menu, or put in "init 3" into a terminal window as root. Did you try to read the instructions for the nVidia driver, where it tells you these things, and how to do them?
