The nvidia drm driver is causing me to not have video.

Apr 6 17:50:34 searchers kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D =======
Apr 6 17:50:34 searchers kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D =======
Apr 6 17:50:34 searchers kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: DCB type 4 not known


I tried removing but it says in use so won't let me. How do I get rid of this?

thanks

sorry - I figured it out myself. Blacklist nouveau and drm. Then modprobe -r nouveau.

Now I have video again!

I had the same problem myself, when upgrading to 2.6.33.1, I thought it was my card only since it was an 9800GTX , but it seems nouveau has issues.
Don't need to blacklist drm only nouveau, and install driver from nvidia.
