need help with init 3 for nvidia install

Odd I just tried it here (11.4) again (been a while) and init 3 stops with the success line without returning to the prompt until you hut enter.

AMD 3200+ processor.

I have always seen this with init 3 and init 5 once you return to the terminal.

I also see that behavior for several years on all my systems.

You mean 12.1 with systemd.

Yes, it /appears/ to take a long time to the prompt because things are
running in the background. The same things happens in 11.4, but up front,
and takes about the same time.

I just tried in 12.1 (virtual) and I got the prompt on tty1 after some
seconds. If I was logged in already, I get the bash prompt, and I don’t
need to press “enter”.

In 11.4 I can’t try right now, but the behaviour was similar, barring
systemd vs systemv differences.

On my 11.4 laptop I see what you mean. The prompt is not printed, you have
to type an “enter” if you were logged it. You can also type a command
directly with no prompt, it will run.

Right.
