First time install of Debian wheezy.
My nvidia 580gtx GPU is crashing GNOME and the computer. To get it to boot I had to use
nouveau.modeset=0 in GRUB. Now that I'm in, I want to install the newest NVidia driver so I can boot normally, but when I try and install it, it tells me to disable "x server".
$ sudo service xdm stop $ sudo service lightdm stop $ sudo service gdm stop
but they all fail. What am I doing wrong?
