Well if it's working there's not a problem? I was only advising what to
do if s-c-d generates an xorg.conf for you which tries to use nv, and
consequently X fails. If X is working, you don't need to do anything.

If there's no xorg.conf (which is quite usual for the last few releases,
it's the default situation) then you're just using X.org's own
auto-detection routines, which will choose nouveau. Which is what we
wanted.
