Default 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.
