Unhappy How to Permanently blacklist nouveau module in fedora 17 (grub2)


Hello everyone !

i just installed fedora 17 and downloaded the nvidia driver for GPU (GT 630). i have previously installed it in fedora 16. this time i am unable to blacklist nouveau module persistently. i made a change in /etc/default/grub as follows:

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 SYSFONT=True  KEYTABLE=us rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rhgb quiet rdblacklist=nouveau"
and after that i ran:

Code:
grub2-mkconfig
the output of this showed rdblacklist=nouveau somewhere, therefore i thought grub2-mkconfig has read my change in /etc/default/grub.

but after restart it was not present in kernel boot parameters, and nouveau was still loaded.

for the time being i manually edited the boot parameters at boot screen and then switched to runlevel 3, by this i was able to install nvidia driver.

now the problem is that i have to manually blacklist nouveau every time while booting, otherwise it conflicts with the installed nvidia driver and in which case GUI freezes.

any idea/help will be greatfull.

Thanks.

In order to ubdate grub2 config file you need to run,
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
but I believe the nvidia yum/rpm install will do it for you.
