I am trying to install the nvidia proprietary drivers from the nvidia site. However when I run the script it says that nouveau is still running and can't load nvidia.ko. I've tried blacklisting nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, but it still loads up on startup for some damned reason and I don't know how to get rid of it. Uninstalling the nouveau package in the package manager simply leaves me with a corrupted virtual console so I can't install the nvidia driver!
Does anyone know how to install the nvidia drivers properly? And no, I do not want to simply install the nvidia package in the package manager. That driver is never updated to the latest version.
