Sorry for the format, but im trying to do this on my smartphone since my ubuntu is down lol. I am trying to run the command sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current in the root shell prompt but I am getting a few errors since I'm not in write mode. How do I fix this? My computer keeps booting to a blank screen right before asking for my login after I recently tried updating my nivida drivers.
