Question A problem of a newbie!

Hi all.
I'm a linux newbie and I have a problem....
My distro is an RH9 on an AMD 2000xp and a GF4 TI4200.
I have downloaded the latest nvidia driver but.... I don't know how I can end the xserver running....
Maybe it could be a very stupid thing...
I tried to start an emergy session but.... nope the installation tells me that the xserver still running...
Please help me to abandon windowz

Default try

switch to console mode, usually a ctrl+alt+f1 is enough
then kill X process and any graphical login app (like kdm, gdm or xdm if they're in respawn mode).
u can find the right pid to kill with
ps aux

then just run the installer
hooe it helps

Smile Thanks

Thanks.. I have tried yesterday with ctrl+alt+F1 and I go to console mode.
But I haven't understood how to kill the x server..... I tried xkill xterm and all of this but the only thing is that he can't recognize the monitor 0 ?????

Don't worry I'll try untill I win!

Everyone want a window desktop... so why nvidia don't make a window installer?

Default Kill X

To kill X, you just have to open a console, (you can be in X and start a shell) login as root, (type su root), and then type in "init 3"
The X server will close.

Default GOD DAMN **** !!!

You freeze in the boot?

You must change in /etc/X11 the file XF86Config-4

change Driver="nv" by Driver="nvidia"
remove the line Load"VLCore" and Load"dri"

be sure the Load"glx" line is here.

Default Accelerate?

Do you have a special place to see it or you tested with Tuxracer and it's slow? My tuxracer is fast with the driver...
