13 Here is a working combination (for me), assuming modular-X:
14 nvidia-[glx,kernel]-1.0.8762
15 x11-base/xorg-server-1.0.2-r7
16 x11-base/xorg-x11-7.0-r1
17 virtual/x11-7.0-r2
19 Notice that nvidia-glx-1.0.8762 contains an explicit RDEPEND for
20 !>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.0.99
21 and the combination nvidia-glx-<anything> and xorg-server-1.1.<anything>
22 will fail. With -1.1, the server/driver interface changed, and last I
23 knew, the nvidia driver has not caught up. Notice also that after
24 installing xorg-server, you might have to
25 eselect opengl set nvidia
26 by hand (I do, but haven't bothered tracking down why).
28 If you are running xorg-x11-6.8.2-r8, none of this applies, and you will
29 need information from someone else.
31 Hope this helps,
32 Regards,
