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.

Thanks

"What do I need to do so it boots in run level 3."

You can change the default run level. Log in as root. Edit /etc/inittab to change:
id:5:initdefault:
to
id:3:initdefault:

Then reboot. After you have your drivers installed then change the default run level back to 5.

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.

or hit the ESC key at the boot menu and type 'linux init 3'
