Hello,

When I want to blacklist nouveau with M1 and systemd I get this message :

sudo echo "blacklist nouveau">> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
bash: /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf: Toegang geweigerd


Can this be solved on a way so I can enjoy Gnome3 with Gnome-shell

If you want to blacklist nouveau, then you want to use the nvidia proprio.
For getting latest drivers (275.09.04) actually installed and working use the
following path

Download the drivers from ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/
then reboot with added to the boot line
nomodeset blacklist=nouveau 3

Login as root, then build the new drivers
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-275.09.04.run

Follow instructions, and add the 32bits compatibility
Then the installer push automatically a file
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf

For me I remove that one and replace it by

/etc/modprobe.d/50-nvidia.conf
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
options nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileUID=0 NVreg_DeviceFileGID=33
NVreg_DeviceFileMode=0660

For xorg I didn't have a xorg.conf file I use the new xorg.conf.d layout
and have just added in 50-devices.conf
drivers "nvidia"

Oke,

I did all the steps except replacing and get now these error messages when
starting x :

Fatal : inserting nvidia ….. no such device
(EE) NVIDIA : Failed to load the nvidia kernel module. Please check the
(EE) system's kernel log for additional errror messages.
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error,0)
(EE) No drivers found.

Can i repair this one ?

Check /var/log/nvidia-installer.log to make sure the module was built.
If it was successful there should be a file "/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko".
I'm about to reboot and run NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-275.09.04.run to see if there is a problem.

Sid.
