NVIDIA setting is not working after upgrade
1 Attachment(s)
after I have upgraded my ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 I lost my taps menu ( application, places and sytem). I have reboot with the recovery mode which is working with low graphic and works fine. when i go to nvidia setting i get the message You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

Re: NVIDIA setting is not working after upgrade

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> You appear to be running in runlevel 1; this may cause problems.  For exampl
  e: some distributions that use devfs do not run the devfs daemon in runlevel
  1, making it difficult for `nvidia-installer` to correctly setup the kernel
  module configuration files.  It is recommended that you quit installation no
  w and switch to runlevel 3 (`telinit 3`) before installing.
  Quit installation now? (select 'No' to continue installation) (Answer: No)
-> The file '/tmp/.X0-lock' exists and appears to contain the process ID '1147'
  of a runnning X server.
ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.
      For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER
      in the README available on the Linux driver download page at

Do what the installer says:
go from rescue mode at level 1 to normal multiuser level 3 - telinit 3
Exit X. If you do not have X running rm -f /tmp/.X0-lock
then install nvidia driver.
