That's fine and dandy, but what if I want to copy my file to another directory? Let's say instead of copying /path/to/conf_to the /path/to/ directory, you want to copy it to a directory where you store all of your backup files, say /my/backup/folder/.In order to accomplish this you would type: You can create a bash script by opening your favorite text editor to edit your script and then saving it (typically the file extension is used for your reference, but is not necessary.

There are some annoying bugs but I am working on sorting those out and I will try to post some of the results.
ERROR: 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 The line that indicates the default runlevel appears as or similar, where n indicates the number of the runlevel. Please read the sections on editing files and root user if you are unfamiliar with this concept.Also, it is recommended that you create a copy of the file prior to editing it, particularly if you are new to Linux text editors, in case you accidentally corrupt the file: After saving the changes, exit X.If your system typically boots to the X window system with a graphical login and desktop, you must both exit X and change your default runlevel.On most distributions, the default runlevel is stored in the file /etc/inittab, although you may have to consult the guide for your own distribution.Level 3 typically includes networking services, so if utilities used by the system during installation depend on a remote filesystem, Levels 1 and 2 will be insufficient.
