Question Shutting down XServer in SuSE

How do I shut down my XServer in SuSE so I can get to my command line to install my Geforce drivers? Once in the command line, what are the commands to change back my boot up to load XServer? Any help would be awsome. Thanks.

Default Re: Shutting down XServer in SuSE

Shutting down X is a change in runlevel, look in /etc/inittab for the levels assigned to numbers. Then use init to change, eg init 2
Another way might be to stop the display manager service - not sure how Suse would do this.
To get back X any user can go startx
