What's happening here is the nouveau kernel driver is getting
automatically loaded, and that's stopping the nv X.org driver from
loading. Probably all we can do about this is have system-config-display
block the nouveau kernel module from loading if you configure nv as the
X.org driver; I'll file a bug for that. To do it manually, just add this
line to a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ (you can call the file anything you
like, as long as it ends in .conf - for
e.g. /etc/modprobe.d/no_nouveau.conf ):
then either reboot, or just run 'rmmod nouveau' as root and restart X.
Have you filed a bug on the fact that nouveau does not work with your
chipset? If not, could you do so, and include the /var/log/Xorg.0.log
and dmesg logs? (If you have, what's the URL?) Thanks!
The blacklist should solve my problem and the system-config-display hack
should work with working systems. But the install issue still remains. I
think this issue needs attention before release.
