Hrm. I had nv running on a PowerBook with Andreas' patches. Please check:
nv: booting with nomodeset and
nouveau.blacklist=1 I can prevent the nouveau kernel module loading (KMS is in the initrd)
but the nv X driver still complains "The PCI device 0x10de0141 (GeForce 6600) at

Maybe someone who knows about Gnome has an idea on the first. The X server seems to be
running ok as while the "Oh no! Something has gone wrong error" is on the screen
I can manually start an xterm on the same display.
It worked just fine for me after I used the patches version of nv mentioned above :)
I like the patch, remove the check :) nv driver now starts for me now but gnome goes
into fallback mode. Same for you?

I see Andreas has a nouveau package in the same repo,
it's the same diff (against 12.2) as mine, just change the exclusive-arch .....

IIRC Ben was hacking on the nouveau driver for PPC a while back. Maybe he has some more
