I have installed Rocky 9.2 on a circa 2010ish generic PC. The machine has an I7-990x, 24GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 video card. The purpose of this machine is to run Blackmagic Design’s Davinci Resolve Studio and it will not run with Nouveau.
I have been unsuccessful installing the video driver “NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-535.113.01.run”. Even though I’m booting to the shell as “root” The installer sees Nouveau running and fails. I used it to create the file: nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf with which contains;
→ blacklist nouveau
→ options nouveau modeset=0
It then saved it in the directores /usr/lib/modprobe.d & /etc/modprobe.d
Alas, after rebooting this has not stopped Nouveau from loading. I’m still getting small 1080HD sized characters on the shell screen not the big segmented stuff you get with a VGA.
So how do I turn Nouveau off?
Any help in pointing me to the correct solution, documents, ELRepo resources would be much appreciated.
