As I wrote, the nouveau Xorg driver will be loaded
anyway, but that doesn't
mean it's actually used.
even if there was no "module unloaded" message in the Xorg.0.log?
All the evidence I see tells me that it refuses to run
and Xorg is using the
generic "modesetting" driver instead, this is the one Felix Miata is talking
about too btw.
After uninstalling nvidia, nv and nouveau this driver indeed is loadead
and later unloaded, as the log states.
The next one is fbdevhw which seems to be the one the X server is finally

Don't confuse the Xorg driver with the kernel
The nouveau kernel module (kernel driver) is still loaded, even if you
uninstall the nouveu Xorg driver, and "modesetting" depends on it/requires it

Well, you may be misinterpretung what you see.
To prove that the nouveau *Xorg* driver is used, please provide the

No, that's about the Mesa OpenGL nouveau driver,
another part that's quite
unrelated to the Xorg driver, and also used by "modesetting" if installed.

Again, this is completely unrelated to the kernel
module, support for your
GPU is apparently missing from the nouveau Xorg driver, not the kernel

Maybe try to run "mkinitrd" then to make sure the new firmware is part of the
Doesn't kernel installation always trigger a mkinitrd?
It is normally loaded before the root filesystem is
