How you removed nouveau ? it is part of the kernel... echo "blacklist
nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/99-local.conf should be enough.

As I mentioned in another note, it was listed in Software Manager. I
simply deleted it by replacing the check mark with an X. The package
removed was:

xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau - Accelerated Open Source driver for
nVidia cards

While removing xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau should:
- remove xorg part of nouveau
- blacklist kernel module nuveau
- rebuild initrd without nouveau and with nvidia kernel module

You can check is it the case with:

lsmod | grep nouveau

which will show is kernel driver nouveau still loaded.
If it is then your video system most likely has no access to 3D.


hwinfo --gfxcard

should give you comprehensive output that has only one problem,
it is verbose :)
