Linux-3.3.0 is released and, as is my usual habit, I downloaded and compiled
the plain vanilla source.

After rebooting to the command console, and before starting X, I needed
to re-install the nvidia-driver module for the new kernel.  Doing
"emerge nvidia-drivers" gave me the following error (the entire build log
is attached):

>>> Source prepared. >>> Configuring source in /tmp/portage-acc/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.20-r1/work ... >>> Source configured. >>> Compiling source in /tmp/portage-acc/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.20-r1/work ...

Could this be due to some changes in the kernel-3.3.0 tree? Frank Peters
