I have downloaded that latest Nvidia drivers for my system. They are in the downloads folder, all I do is drag it into terminal.
When I am root user it checks the integrity and runs checks on it.
When it starts to unpack I get splash screen telling me the following:
You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before
installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
How do I exit X server? Is there a command I can run?
And once I exit should it update my drivers normally?
Would it have an effect if I change the propriety drivers to Nvidia?
