Hello, I upgraded a pc to F25 and I would like to re-use the nouveau driver instead of the nvidia driver that was installed previously.

  • So I removed all the nvidia packages: dnf remove \*nvidia\*
  • I installed the xorg and mesa packages: dnf install xorg-* mesa*
  • I also remove "blacklist nouveau" in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
  • I made sure there is no mention of nouveau in /etc/default/grub

    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" rhgb quiet vga=792"
  • I generated initramfs: dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

  • and rebooted

but not graphical environment.

And file /var/log/Xorg.0.log is not updated.

and nouveau driver is loaded:

# lsmod | grep nouveau
nouveau              1564672  1
video                  40960  1 nouveau
mxm_wmi                16384  1 nouveau
wmi                    16384  2 mxm_wmi,nouveau
i2c_algo_bit           16384  1 nouveau
drm_kms_helper        151552  1 nouveau
ttm                    94208  1 nouveau
drm                   344064  4 nouveau,ttm,drm_kms_helper

What should I do?

Thank you.
