[marion@localhost ~]$ su -
[root@localhost ~]# gedit /etc/inittab
Edit this line:
To this line:
Still using gedit, open /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Remove the following lines:
... if it's not already there.
or Driver "vesa"
or Driver "fbdev"
Save both the xorg.conf and inittab files and reboot. After you reboot, linux will boot into terminal mode and ask for the user login.
Login and su - to root, run the Nvidia .run file. For me everthing went fine, and I got none of the previous errors I'd received before.
Once it's finished, at the command line run
If all went well you should see the nvidia logo full screen like I did.
This will get you back to the xserver, login and use gedit again to edit /etc/inittab and set it back to 5.
Now to play UT2004.
