I had to replace my really nice 64-bit 12.1 install with a 32-bit
version. Don't ask why. I did a list of the installed RPMs on the 64-bit
install and then installed them on the 32-bit with zypper. Worked a
charm. Except...

The nvidia proprietary driver does not load. There is an error message
in the X log that says the nvidia driver could not be loaded. Details
are sparse. I think it is because the nouveau driver is installed. I see
that there is a file called /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf that contains
"blacklist nouveau". I did a reboot, and the driver is still installed.

Could there be some error in the initrd? Otherwise, why would the driver
still be installed?

The nvidia RPMs are from OBS. Thay are:

x11-video-nvidiaG02-290.10-13.1.i586
nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop-290.10_k3.1.0_1.2-12.1.i586
nvidia-computeG02-290.10-13.1.i586


What did I miss?
