With GDM removed in Oneiric, what command can I replace from the old command?

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

I need to install an nvidia .run file and cannot figure out how to stop the server.

Strictly speaking the natty method was

sudo service gdm stop

For oneiric lightdm has replaced gdm - therefore to stop you would use

sudo service lightdm stop
