I found a similiar question. In my case a catalog /etc/modprobe.d/ doesn't contain blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf but there is nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf Can I use following command (when switching to nouveau) : sed -i "s/nouveau/nvidia/" /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf or I should create an another conf file which name contains blacklist string ? How does it work ?


Blacklisting nouveau will not work, because they are contained in initrd. You would have to remove the module manually. I think the best way to switch between the drives is to use the tool Additional Drivers.
