Yes indeed deleting that file and running X again should do the trick.

Thanks, but not work. I am a new user. (Sorry for my english, I am spanish), my linux is SUSE 10.0
I read:
"The nvidia installer does not work as long as a Xserver is still
running and the nvidia kernel module is still loaded. Therefore
please boot into runlevel 3 by specifying "3" as kernel boot
option or switch to runlevel 3 ("init 3") and unload the kernel
module ("rmmod nvidia") before running the nvidia installer."


How?

Thanks

Step by step:

1.) root@box# init 3
2.) root@box# rmmod nvidia
3.) root@box# rm -rf /tmp/.X0-locale

Make shure u have kernel source and headers installed and check running kernel version

4.1.) root@box# uname -a

4.2.) root@box# ls -al /usr/src
and check output (should be ok by default if installed)

4.3.) root@box# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run

and install the driver.

5.) root@box# init 5
or reboot the machine.

nvidia-installer checks for /tmp/.XN-lock, where N is 0..7; if one of these files is present, it is currently assumed that X is running (which is usually the case). If an X server is running, you need to shut it down; only if no X server is running do you need to remove the file manually (future versions of nvidia-installer will be able to determine if the files are stale).
