Re: Can't login with kernel update and NVIDIA

Installing new drivers isn't the issue, that's a piece of cake. What is the issue is that whereas a with failed X start I used to be able to login as root and reinstall new drivers. Easy. Now I can't log in to yum anything. Well I can but I have to reboot into single user or level 3. But I have to reboot via the reset button, which causes one of my disks to fsckfor 5 minutes. Or boot my laptop, login, su to root, init 3 to get a login screen. blah, blah... Maybe my original post was unclear.
