    Ok so i went to the Geforce website and downloaded the geforce 210 driver for 32bit linux. So when i try to run the .run file i get this

    Code:
    You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before            
             installing.  For further details, please see the section INSTALLING   
             THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver         
             download page at www.nvidia.com.
    What is this X server and how do i exit out of it?

    It is possible to install the drivers d/led from nVidia, but its much easier to just use the hardware drivers tool-

    system-> administration-> hardware drviers

    Using the driver provided that way can save a lot of problems, eg, if you get a kernel upgrade.

    In 99% of cases, its not worth the hassle to install the newest nVidia drivers manually.
