9 Nouveau complains about not finding your device, which I believe it
10 could only happen if the kernel driver is missing.
12 You originally used the NVidia binary drivers, or nouveau? If you use
13 the binary drivers, you need to remove nouveau from (uninstall
14 xf86-video-nouveau) and from the kernel (make sure you don't have
15 CONFIG_DRM_NOUVEAU in your kernel). If you want to use the open source
16 nouveau driver, you need to remove nvidia-drivers, and install both
17 the driver (install xf86-video-nouveau), and the kernel module
18 (set CONFIG_DRM_NOUVEAU in your kernel).
20 As far as I know, you should not mix them up. To make things more
21 clear, could you please post the output from "equery l -if
22 x11-drivers/", and also your kernel .config? Also, do you have
23 VIDEO_CARDS in /etc/portage/make.conf, and if so to which value?
25 Regards.
