Need help disabling X server in SuSE 8.2
I need to disable the X server to install the NVIDIA drivers for my video card... Can I log into another session with that disabled already? Anyway, help would be greatly appreciated... thanx

You can either type "3" in the text bit at the bottom when you first boot up Suse or log into another terminal "Ctrl-Alt-F1" for example and log in as root and type "init 3"
That will drop you to runlevel 3 ie no X.

Hope that helps.

It worked, but I still have a problem..
Well I got the drivers installed and it says 3d support is enabled, but when I go to play a 3d game it still says "can't find 3d controller" or whatever... I dunno what's goin on... SOMEBODY HELP!! :)

How many fps do you get when you type gears in a terminal window?

Also post your output of 3Ddiag.

Cheers, Glenn
