I was working out a display driver problem. It turned out I took the nvidia wiki article too seriously, and masked the package back to too old of a version.

That problem has been "fixed," though it presents an entirely new problem. Turns out the nvidia install script that I had played with as a solution had installed "correctly" enough to function beforehand, and there is some aspect of configuration that makes x go black. This problem persists in the freshyly emerged version, only now it starts x on boot,... And I'm running an EFI stub (no GRUB) with higher precedence than my usb... Shoot...

Good news...terminal is running fine behind the blackness. I can log in and reboot (at least I think I am logging in.. The command I found to stop (what was it again?--i'm on my tablet can't look up easily..) Xdm (gkx)dm has no effect. Neither does Ctrl+Alt±Bckspce (I sure wish that was enabled by default)

So how bout it? Know any good ammo-clips of one liners to take down X? I worked so hard on that custom kernel(more than just the stub) 'don't really want to scrap it with the Apple USB recovery.

openrc?

/etc/init.d/xdm stop

And your next step should be to edit /etc/rc.conf and set "interactive=YES" so that you can press "I" during the next boot and say "no" to xdm.

I was able to hold option to load my systemrescuecd USB. Then chrooted to make the interactive boot edit.

It looks like the screen goes black when udev starts, but I'm not sure why this would happen only after a xorg-server install ( in other words I don't know much at all about udev...) ... :0| ...:0]?

So this topic is technically solved. (I want to do all this in the appropriate way.) I'm a little worried that starting a new thread is a little spammy. I probably should have made a subject and post that was closer to the essence of my problem.

But I certainly am no longer looking for a oneline x server terminator.

Thank you very much for the reply!!
