My computer freezes unless I add the following parameter: modprobe.blacklist=nouveau
For now, I add it everytime I start it. Is there a way that this can be set permanently somewhere so I don't have to type it everytime?

This steps are performed in a GUI-way by opening "MX Boot Options" and adjust the field "Kernel Parameter". By this the additional kernel parameter will go into to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT within /etc/default/grub and update-grub is run afterwards, which will regenerate the grub-menu holding your new kernel parameter.
