Xorg-x11-drv-noveau system error in a system without NVIDIA

I do not have an nvidia graphics card. However, for some reason Fedora seems to have thought I needed it.

❯ glxinfo | grep -E "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
OpenGL vendor string: Intel
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa Intel(R) UHD Graphics (CML GT2)

Every time I boot I get a string of errors in problem reporting with title

system failure -- xorg-x11-drv-noveau

I even added this blacklist file to my modprobe.d directory. Still, the same thing.

❯ cat /etc/modprobe.d/noveau-blacklist.conf  
# This machine does not have an NVIDIA driver; hence noveau is just
# here because of someone who didn't disable it in the distribution,
# and it creates problems and crashes. It is rubbish.
blacklist noveau
options noveau modeset=0

I also noticed that the longer it takes to boot, the more system failures I get after the fact in problem reporting. And often I can’t go into or out of suspend.

Noveau is filling my dmesg with red crap:

Does anyone know what’s going on, or how to fix it?

OK, some improvements:

nouveau not noveau :man_facepalming:

I also now ran

sudo dracut --force


Fixed! :partying_face:
