Default Re: successfully install driver,but can't start X,help!!

The file is /etc/modprobe/blacklist.conf

You have to add

blacklist nouveau

to the end.

And make ABSOLUTELY sure you dont have any nvidia packages installed. Also, disable KMS.
Create a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf and put in it
options nouveau modeset=0
just to be sure.

Prior to installation remove your xorg.conf (or rename it). Let the installer configure it.
