I've tried everything suggested in this thread and nothing works...
if I try by beginning with cntrl+alt+F1
, it tells me that I'm still running with X server active.
If I try booting into recovery mode>root>sudo>install driver ... it tells me a destination directory cannot be created - no change regardless of any operand I choose.
if I try booting into recovery mode>root>telinit 3
, it asks for my login, I type root
and press enter, it tells me "ro: not a command
", then I get in a txt loop that seems to bug out the interface and requires a restart.
Lastly, if I use the NVIDIA instructions (from the driver website)... (a) from the OS it tells me Im running X server, and (b) from recovery mode init1, it gives me an error; something about grub-editenv is invalid...
