On 10.10 I was able to make quick Video Drivers installs just by starting Ubuntu in "recovery mode", which would me allow to modify the X server. But now if I start the system in recovery mode it still starts the X server and all the
service gdm stop and
service lightdm stop commands won't work.
gdm says it isn't a recognized command and
lightdm simply turns off my screen. None of the Ctrl+Alt+F* combinations work. This is getting to my nerves.
Please! I just upgraded my system and I need to install the video drivers. Thank you!
