Command to disable graphic card drivers

Recommended Posts

Hey guys can u tell me which command i must use to disable the graphic card drivers when i boot my Mac OS and i press F8 to enter the command line?

 

I installed a wrong drivers and it does not allow me to access the OS (just appear a black screen after in the log in). So i must enter the Leopard without use any driver and delete some kext...

 

Thanks

Afaik, -x is only for safe mode, might still not be able to get to GUI, at least in my case it didn't work. If i have to remove drivers to be able to boot i usually type -s at boot. Then when you get a command line prompt

 

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /

cd /system/library/extensions

 

then for example

 

mv Yourwrongdriver.kext Yourwrongdriver.kext.bak

 

or

 

mv Yourwrongdriver.kext /

 

then i remove all caches and reboot and usually i can get back into the GUI. Hope that helps...
