    Read all the way through the link that Roky provided at Ubuntu Linux shutdown the X server - it shows both of the methods that people have described in this thread, but I'll go over it again for emphasis. IF you drop out of run level 5, which is multi-user graphical user interface mode to run level 3, multi-user non graphical user interface mode, or run level 1, single user mode, you should exit the GUI and the graphical driver. The messages above explain how to do both, and they are also noted in the link. Hope that is clear; if not, please share with us what is confusing and we can attempt to explain it further.

    I followed the steps and had to repeat them on line but there isn't any kernel available for my old suse 10 operating system. I should be getting a Linux Mint DVD in the mail next week and I'm sure that the graphics card will work with that.!!

    You mean telinit or init didn't work? I haven't tried Suse but wonders why if the commands won't work.

    I also use Linux Mint, hope everything will work after you change distro.

    Although you can also use
    Code:
    su
    telinit 3
    These commands worked fine! After shutting down the x server I did the sh with the file and it ran.. I agreed to the license and had to do it again on line so the file could attach a kernel but none was available at their site because suse 10 has been out of date for a long time.
