How to stop X server and install NVidia drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2015
last night I do a fresh installation of PinguyOS (64bit based on Ubuntu 14.04) in my Lenovo U410.
It's all perfect, I fix some minor bug.....life of battery approx ok....just the big issue when I attempt to install NVidia drive.
Now.....I try for first time with ubuntu "software and update ----> additional drive" I've select the NVidia drive.....I proceeded to install this, .....finish the procedure and when I shot down the system all was freeze and I have force the shot down; when I switch-on the laptop start the screen and after 5sec all system are stopped and I have blanck screen.
So, I decide to change the way of installation. I've download the NVidia drive from the site (NVIDIA 346.47 GPU driver)....convert the .run file in executable, in terminal I kill the display manager ($ sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop)..... all done, but when I run command of installation the system stop the installation drive because the X server run (doesn't stop it).

I just installed Sabayon, its the Gentoo 2.0.1 version...
I've installed the nVidia driver from the website a thousand times, my problem is that I can't kill the X server on Gentoo/Sabayon. Trying /etc/init.d/xdm stop just kills X and leaves me with a blinking cursor.
I just need to get down to CLI so I can run the binary installer. Suggestions?
