How can I remove the nouveau driver?

Uninstalling xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau does not seem to remove it.
Adding "blacklist nouveau" to /etc/modprobe.d blacklist file does not
prevent it loading.

If the X11 driver isn't actually on the system anymore, then the kernel module
shouldn't be loading either, so that is strange.

But you can also uninstall the nouveau-kmp package(s) (there is one for each
kernel flavour)

I don't think blacklist works the way you think it does. A module can still be
loaded with its "real" name even when blacklisted - to fully disable a module
through config files, you need to have something like "install <module>
/bin/true" in one of the modprobe.conf files

I also think that the brokenmodules= boot option only works in the installer,
not in the normal initrd
