Subject: [gentoo-user] Non-portage nVidia driver install.
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2008 22:41:35
1 Hi all,
3 I just built myself a brand new AMD64 system with an EVGA Geforce 9600GT. This
4 vid card requires a newer version of nvidia drivers (171.06) than is
5 available from portage, so I will have to install it manually.
7 I am wondering if there are any gotchas I should keep in mind before
8 installing it, as in, do I need to unmerge the current unsupported drivers?
9 Should I use package provided? Will 'eselect opengl set nvidia' still work?
11 Shall I just shut up and install it ;)
13 Thanks for replies,
14 -d
