Summary0008639: Impossible to use nvidia drivers instead of nouveau


here is my conf :

Motherboard :ROG STRIX Z490-E GAMING
GPU Nvidia 3060.
(tell me if you need more but it should be enough)

I had problem dual booting a kali linux on my computer so i tried to customize my live iso so it install the nvidia_drivers and nvidia-cuda-toolkit.
Now kali boot with no problems and i can use it, but when i look into lspci -s 02:00.0 -v it says that i'm using :

Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_current_drm, nvidia_current

i added nomodset and nvidia_drm.modeset=0 to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub but nothing change.

Here is my dmesg in attached file. Let me know if i need to provide more logs / informations.

I followed those 2 bugs / discussion on discord : and

Have a wonderful day !
