Default Re: Kernel sometimes (!) not loading module

Sorry for not answering - I had to make sure my solution works, and so far it does.

Thank you very much for your help. It seems that the problem is not with nouveau, as it was not solved by blacklisting it. The problem is that ubuntu pre-loads the driver vga16fb in order to enable plymouth graphical boot.

I did:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

And added the following lines:

blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv

And now my system behaves, although with textual booting sequence.
