I had to replace my really nice 64-bit 12.1 install with a 32-bit

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?

Workaround: I had to rename the nouveau.ko kernel module. Then the
nvidia driver loads. For whatever reason, the blacklist thing does not
have any effect.
