I was referring to the xorg log of the running f11 system. The display
config dialog box also said that I am using nv so I trust it.
That's a bad idea. system-config-display does not tell you what X.org
auto-configuration would do. It has its own, quite different,
configuration logic, and it gives you the result of that. what s-c-d
says is not necessarily either a) what you're currently actually using
or b) what X server would auto-detect.
when I deliberately switched to nouveau with the display dialog and
tried to reset x, x got into a permanent retry loop.

So it could be that the install is trying to use a nouveau driver and
this is causing my hang.
Um. Not really. This blacklisting is done in the X server's
auto-detection code, which the installer uses just like a regular
