How can I change the login from a graphical to the text based? I need to install new nvidia drivers and I can't do it from the failsafe console.

Thanks in advance.

Open /etc/inittab and locate where it says:


id:5:initdefault:

Change it from 5 to 3, so that it looks like this:


id:3:initdefault:


This way you'll boot into initlevel 3, which is text mode.
