Uninstalling packages in not enough for the noueau, because nouveau module in in kernel package, not in x11-something. If you're really desperate you can move somewhere else those drivers, so they can't possibly be loaded. Check rpm -ql kernel | grep nouveau for details.

Also you don't have to make w new file in modprobe.d, editing standard blacklist file is enough. I also tried to change resolution for text console in grub.conf kernel parameter (vga=0x303). I guess high resolution is calling nouveau for help.

I clearly get rid of it, since I haven't any nouveau modules, Gnome desktop loads slower and generally I'm on plain vesa. Nvidia doesn't work either, but that another problem.

I know, that nouveau driver gets under my craw sometimes smile.gif Did you follow the Nvidia install instructions on this forum using Kmod? Aqui?

I put together the instructions wayy back on the old forum, and Redman posted them here.
