Is your computer currently using the proprietary driver?

Tried and can not get rid of nouveau.
I've battled nouveau for several years.
The GUI tool seems to properly install all nvidia304 & components.
But nouveau will simply not remove itself. Several reboots and checks. grub updates etc.
I've purged nouveau but it is still there! wow
