Yes, kernel in the RC area is correct.

using kernel in the RC area I can manually load the nouveau module without errors, but Xorg doesn't want to use it.

Are you starting with no SCEs being loaded from the SCE directory and then using sce-import to import and load SCEs, or, have you re-imported all existing SCEs that will be loaded.

Just wanting to be sure that has been done.

Best test would be to start with an empty TCE/SCE directory, then import needed packages.

Hi
After correcting debextra entries that where still pointing to artful, I've reimported all the sces.
But still the nouveau driver isn't used by Xorg.
I've attached the xorg log of the confless xorg and the faild Xorg -configure
thanks

One last thing, since re-importing the SCEs and correcting /opt/debextra didn't result in a working nouveau, perhaps starting totally clean with an empty SCE directory, no backup, nothing in /opt/debextra.  Then import xorg-all, graphics-4.14.10-tinycore64, flwm (or other window manager).  Like doing a dCore-usbinstall.  It shouldn't make a difference, but only starting clean will we know.  If Ubuntu's nouveau works for your video card, this one should too but it may be the case your card is not supported by the stock nouveau in Linux 4.14.10.  Thanks.

Retried on my normal setup and it works also there.
Don't know why but anyway I'm glad.
So I don't use anymore the proprietary nvidia driver.

I wish you a good week end
