Cool,:-) are you aware that the nvidia kernel module needs to be reinstall every time a new linux kernel or current kernel is compiled? code:*Important: * Every time you compile a new kernel <http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/kernel-upgrade.xml> or recompile the current one, you will need to reinstall the nVidia kernel modules. An easy way to keep track of modules installed by ebuilds (such as nvidia-drivers) is to install sys-kernel/module-rebuild. Once you've installed it, simply run module-rebuild populate to populate its database with a list of packages to be rebuilt. Once you've finished compiling or recompiling a kernel, just run module-rebuild rebuild to rebuild the drivers for your new kernel./code http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/nvidia-guide.xml
