I doubt it. I've either used the generic driver, or the latest nvidia drivers that I've recompiled each and every time on the GCC compiler that matches the version used with the new kernel.
It turns out that I actually did have the nouveau module loaded, after having used lsmod and pilfered through the output. I had to add "blacklist nouveau" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and reboot.

My complaint here is that the nvidia installer didn't check for the nouveau module and emit a message specifically for that. It should IMO.
