Sorry about where i posted my message.

control+alb+backspace doesn't shut down my X server , just logs me off. :confused:

press CTRL+ALT+F1

log-in as root

type: "telinit 3" (without the quotes)

run the nvidia-installer

modify the XF86Config as told in the README file

type: "telinit 5" (without the quotes)

Thanks dulley . I'v done that by setting in a config file runlevel 4 on startup.

Thanks again.
